Juvenal wrote satire for his own time, however when this is translated some features of the satire will change to suit the certain period of time and present slightly different ideas and opinions to that of Juvenal.

Juvenal 5. 1 The satire begins as the satire addresses Trebius. In the Latin, the name Trebius doesn’t appear until line 19.
