The Satires contain six Latin poems of moderate length in the hexameter metre. Persius belonged to the well-to-do and landowning gentry of Italy and the tone and philosophical content of the Satires suggest that he pursued philosophy with an ardour beyond that conventionally thought proper by Romans. Latin text with translation, commentary and notes.
