PERSIUS, Aulus, Persius Flaccus (A.D. 34-62) of Volaterrae was of equestrian rank; he came to Rome and was trained in 'grammar', rhetoric, and Stoic philosophy. In company with his mother, sister and aunt and enjoying the friendship of Lucan and other famous people, he lived a sober life. He left six Satires only (in hexameters); after a prologue (in scazon metre) we have a Satire on the corruption of literature and morals (1); foolish methods of prayer (2); deliberately wrong living and lack of philosophy (3); the well-born insincere politician, and some of our own weaknesses (4); praise of Cornutus the Stoic; servility of men (5); and a chatty poem addressed to the poet Bassus (6)
