Painted in Rubens' early period, The Death of Seneca depicts Seneca's suicide after his role in a coup against Emperor Nero was uncovered. The death of a Stoic is shown here more as an assisted ddeath, rather than a suicide, as if to protect the philosopher's reputation during medieval Cristian mores.
