Satyricon, CD-Audio Book


Petronius' Satyricon is a rampant and vivacious Roman adventure dating back to the first century, during the reign of Nero.

It follows the exploits of Encolpius, an impoverished ex-gladiator, and his boy-lover Giton.

The action is fleet and the narrativesweeping: over the course of their journey we meet a host of lewd and comical rogues, including beggars, prostitutes, poets, sodomites and pedants, and witness many strange and curious events, including a remarkably vulgar multi-course feast, hosted by the pompous nouveau riche Trimalchio.

Considered the Odyssey of the illicit and debaucherous, the Satyricon is anexhilarating look at the underbelly of Roman society.
