Decimus Juniu s Juvenalis (Circa: 55 - 130 A.D.) was one of the greatest of Roman satirists. Born in Aquinum, Italy, he served in Britain and in Egypt as tribune in the army. He is best known for sixteen splendid s atires in verse, dealing with life in the Roman era under Domitian and his successors. He affected the attitudes an angry Stoic moralist. He exposed unnatural vices; anguished over the misery of pover ty; fooled with the precarious life of courtiers and status-seekers; and condemned the extravagance of the ruling classes. His works are often bound with those of Aulus Persius Flaccus (34?62 A.D.), a nother Roman satirical poet who was greatly attached to the Stoic philosopher Lucius Annaeus Cornutus.
