Composed of two blocks it was also used in Tacuinus' edition of Juvenal but with the right hand block replaced; white on black initials; TacuinoÕs printerÕs device at end of Persius. Juvenal (fl. A.D. 100)was the last great Roman satiric poet, and although it is not certain, it is generally believed that he was a member of the imperial court of Domitian who fell out of favor for lampooning a court favorite. His work was largely unpopular until the fourth century when Lactantius quoted him by name and Ausonius, among others, imitated him. Juvenal's satire may be seen as a protest against the corruptions of Rome in his day, and the works were greatly admired throughout the Middle Ages and became the model for many satirists in the Renaissance and thereafter.
    Persius Flaccus (A.D.34-62), Etruscan knight and Stoic, is best remembered for his satires. His works were much read in Anitquity and the Middle Ages, but for his contorted thought, language, and many digressions, they are little read today. Donne emulated him, and his work has been compared for its flavor to that of Auden. Juvenalis: Goff J665. Hain/Copinger 9712*. IDL 2833. IGI 5600. Saj--SoltŽsz 2003. IBE 3396. Coll(U) 919.
