Depiction of a woman in Juvenalian Rome
Depiction of a woman according to the writing of the famous satirist, Juvenal (Decimus Iunius Iuvenalis). Juvenal did not have a high opinion of women and particularly felt Roman women had no morals. He displays a woman to be standing on a table allowing herself to be exploited. Other women are similarly displayed slung over men, or even kissing them demonstrating their own promiscuous tendencies. Date: 15 B.C
