Quintilian was the most influential educational thinker produced by Rome

Quintilian was the most influential educational thinker produced by Rome. He was primarily a teacher of Rhetoric, directly concerned with educating orators and in elaborating a systematic educational theory. In his educational model the orator was to be a person of humanities or liberal culture. To him, the perfect orator was not only an excellent speaker but also a worthy human being.
Quintilian’s first book, a plan for the proper education of the orator appeared in AD 94. This book was a systematic educational work; it dealt with the education of a boy prior to the study of rhetoric, the studies proper to rhetoric and the theory and practice of rhetoric.
