'''''Satirikono''''' estas [[Latina lingvo|latinlingva]] verko de fikcio supozeble verkita de [[Petronio|Gajo Petronio]], kvankam la manuskripta tradicio identigas la aŭtoron kiel iu Titus Petronius. La Satirikono estas ekzemplo de [[Menippean satire]], which is very different from the formal verse satire of [[Juvenal]] or [[Horace]]. The work contains a mixture of prose and verse (commonly known as ''[[prosimetrum]]''); serious and comic elements; and erotic and decadent passages. As with the ''[[The Golden Ass|Metamorphoses]]'' (also called ''The Golden Ass'') of [[Apuleius]], classical scholars often describe it as a "'''Roman novel'''", without necessarily implying continuity with [[novel|the modern literary form]].<ref>Harrison (1999). Nonetheless, Moore (101–3) aligns it with modern novels like Joyce's ''Ulysses'' and Pynchon's ''Gravity's Rainbow''.</ref>
The surviving portions of the text detail the misadventures of the narrator, Encolpius, and his lover, a handsome sixteen-year-old servant boy named Giton. Throughout the novel, Encolpius has a difficult time keeping his lover faithful to him as he is constantly being enticed away by others. Encolpius's friend Ascyltus (who seems to have previously been in a relationship with Encolpius) is another major character.
