  Sections from Petronius Arbiter's novel, with scenes from Fellini Satyricon.   So although complete as the subtitle of this declares, some of this book is not necessarily what Petronius Arbiter actually wrote. Bearing that in mind then this is still a good translation, although if you have never read the story before, and indeed this translation, then I should point out that it is for more mature audiences due to some of Reviews: Petronius Arbiter (Gaius, or Titus) who is usually accepted as identical with the author of the Satyricon, flourished at the time of the emperors Claudius (AD) and Nero (AD), and Tacitus speaks of him in the Annals, where he describes his suicide after condemnation by Nero.
