How to use Persius in a sentence
Perhaps we may think the ferule well deserved when we read of the schoolboy's trick immortalized by Persius.The Private Life of the Romans|Harold Whetstone Johnston
I am now arrived at the most difficult part of my undertaking, which is, to compare Horace with Juvenal and Persius.

If Persius, says he, be in himself obscure, yet my interpretation has made him intelligible.
This is a strange mistake in an author, who translated Persius entirely, and great part of Juvenal.
