Introduction. Horace’s Satires are a collection of two books of hexameter poems which offer a humorous-critical commentary, of an indirect kind, unique to Horace, on various social phenomena in 1st century BCE Rome.

The Satires are Horace’s earliest published work: Book 1, with ten poems, was published around 35 BCE, and Book 2, with eight poems, was published around 30 BCE.Persius (77–87), the friend imagines a scenario in which a sick man rushes to his doctor in a panic but soon forgets the doctor’s advice and returns to his self-indulgent habits (88–).

At this point, the student protests that there is nothing wrong with him (–9).Persius clearly influenced Juvenal, although Juvenal chooses not to mention him by name.

Martial and Quintilian, however, single him out for praise, emphasizing that Persius wrote only one book.
