Plotinus was educated in Alexandria, Egypt under Ammonius Saccas. He went to Rome and opened a school some time around 245 AD. An exponent of Plato and the Neoplatonic movement, Plotinus was also described as a mystic and is known to have had knowledge of oriental philosophy. His biographer and disciple, Porphyry joined him in 263 AD and collected his work into the Enneads, so called because of the division of the works into nine books.
