Along with Juvenal, Persius was one of the greatest 1st century Roman satirists. His works consisted of elements of stoicism and were greatly influenced by Horace and Juvenal, in fact the satires of both Juvenal and Persius are often found published together. In his ‘Satires’, Persius sought a few major philosophical ideas:

  • important questions to ask the gods
  • the meaning of life
  • the importance of gaining knowledge
  • freedom through Stoicism
  • the proper use of money

 

This 1507 post-incunable printing of Persius’s ‘Satyrae’ was published in Paris by Jean Barbier and Denis Roce. This edition was edited by Giovanni Britannico, a 15th-century grammarian who is best known for his edition of Persius.

 

This book is bound with another early Roce printing of Baptista Mantuanus poetry. Mantuanus was a Carmelite poet whose 15th-century works were influential during the Protestant Reformation. This work was presumed to be published in 1499 and was bound in conjunction with Roce’s other works.
