The Satyricon

Trans. J.P.Sullivan Petronius

Edition:1st

Publisher:Penguin Books Ltd

“The Satyricon” is one of the most outrageous and strikingly modern works to have survived from the ancient world. Most likely written by an advisor of Nero, it recounts the adventures of Encolpius and his companions as they travel around Italy, encountering courtesans, priestesses, con men, brothel-keepers, pompous professors -and, above all, Trimalchio, the nouveau riche millionaire whose debauched feasting and pretentious vulgarity make him one of the great comic characters in literature. Estimated to date from 63 - 65 AD, and only surviving in fragments, “The Satyricon” nevertheless offers an unmatched satirical portrait of the age of Nero, in all its excesses and chaos.
