PERSIUS ON GREEKS, JEWS AND BARBARIANS

J. C. Zietsman

Abstract


The range of multicultural references in the satires of Persius falls into three groups.
This paper will discuss a representative selection of the poet's most obvious and
most significant references to Greeks, Jews and other population groups which I
collectively call barbarians. The vast majority of these references in Persius' satires
relate to Greeks, there is only one reference to Jews, and three references to
barbarians will be discussed briefly.
