See generally D.A. Russell in OCD4 Plutarch.
[1] Trajan's reign: 98-117 CE. Modern scholars date Plutarch's life to approximately 40-120 CE.
[2] This statement (also in Eusebius) about Trajan granting Plutarch ornamenta consularia is in all likelihood ahistorical. In the later tradition Plutarch became a teacher and sage adviser to emperor Trajan, leading to such pseudoplutarchean works as the Institutio Trajani (available in Vol 7 of Bernardakis's 1896 Teubner edition of the Moralia, p.183-193).
[3] Plutarch's Parallel Lives and other essays (collectively the Moralia) are in fact one of the largest corpora of classical literature extant. See further, next note
[3a] The total number of works written by Plutarch may be as high as 250 to 260: cf. Konrat Ziegler, Plutarchos von Chaironeia, Stuttgart 1964, cc.60-66; cf. also Lamprias, lambda 96, note 2.
Probably the best introduction to current discussions of Plutarch's Parallel Lives is the introduction in P.A. Stadter, (1989), A commentary on Plutarch's Pericles, Chapel Hill, University of North Carolina Press. See also:
