The book: This 1659 edition of "Auli Persii Flacci Satyrae VI" features the six satires of Aulus Persius Flaccus, a Roman poet and satirist of Etruscan origin known for his incisive commentary on society and the individual. Persius' work, deeply imbued with Stoic philosophy, offers insights into Roman societal norms, personal ethics, and the human condition, making his satires as relevant today as they were in ancient times. This rare edition is further enriched with posthumous commentaries by Joannis Bond, providing readers with scholarly interpretations of Persius' dense and allusive Latin texts.

The author: Aulus Persius Flaccus (34–62 AD) lived during the Roman Empire's early Imperial period. Though he produced a limited body of work before his untimely death at the age of 28, Persius' satires have been celebrated for their moralistic tone and literary quality, standing alongside the works of more prolific authors such as Horace and Juvenal.
