Description

The Satyricon is a work of fiction in a mixture of prose and poetry. It is believed to have been written by Gaius Petronius, though the manuscript tradition identifies the author as a certain Titus Petronius. It details the misadventures of the narrator, Encolpius, and his lover, a handsome sixteen-year-old boy named Giton. Throughout the novel, Encolpius has a hard time keeping his lover faithful to him as he is constantly being enticed away by others.

This book has 257 pages in the PDF version. This translation by W. C. Firebaugh was originally published in 1922.

Production notes: This e-book of The Satyricon was published by Global Grey in 2018.
