"The film Satyricon is an adaptation of a novel of the same name by Petronius, probably written in the year 65. Only fragments of the text have survived, less than 1/5 of the original at best. Most of the fragments deal with the adventures of the ‘knave errant’ Encolpius and his lover, the slave Giton, who has an eye on a new boyfriend, Ascyltus. Another surviving fragment deals with an evening of feasting and debauchery in the house of nouveau-rich Trimalchio. To these two strands, the Satyricon scriptwriters added tales and images from other classical Roman texts, and some of the most memorable scenes in the film (the earthquake, the minotaur), in fact do not come from Petronius."
