Abstract:

This is work of fiction by the Latin author Petronius written about the middle of the first century A.D. The identity of Petronius is uncertain. He may well have been Gaius Petronius Arbiter, a courtier and companion in debauchery of the Emperor Nero, who fell out of his master's favor and committed suicide in A.D. 65. The Satyricon is a somewhat scandalous work of fiction of which only fragments (Bks. 14, 15, and 16 from its at least twenty books) are still in existence and it presents a bawdy picture of life in Rome at the time of the Emperor Nero.
