Abstract

The last three books of Juvenal’s satires (satires VII-XVI) were composed under Hadrian. In the fifteenth satire the poet recalls a religious upheaval broke out in 127 between the two Egyptian towns of Ombi and Tentira; in this satire can be found an allusion to the fate of Antinous after his death, which suggests that the satire was composed after October 130. Even in satires VII, XIV and XVI we can detect allusions to events of Hadrian’s reign and retrieve point of view on important aspects of Hadrian’s principate.
