Juvenalis, Decimus Junius; Aulus Persius Flaccus; & Sulpicia; Heinrich Christian von Hennin, ed.  D. Junii Juvenalis Aquinatis satyrae [with] Auli Persii Flacci satyrarum liber [and] Sulpiciae satyra. Mannhemii: Societatis literatae, 1780–81. 8vo (16.5 cm, 6.5"). [4], 178, [181]–251, [1] pp.

Juvenal's bitterly eloquent pieces are often published with and set in contrast to Persius's gentler, more Stoic-inspired poems, with both authors' Satyrae being standards of the genre. In this Mannheim edition from the Societatis literatae, Juvenal's work has been edited by Heinrich Christian de Hennin and appears with => a title-page featuring an engraved portrait of Nero done by Egid Verhelst. Persius's, with a separate title-page, was edited by Isaac Casaubon and is paginated continuously from the Juvenal, although dated 1780 as opposed to the 1781 of the first set. ne of Sulpicia's surviving pieces follows, along with synopses and notes.
