Juvenal was a Roman poet active in the late 1st and early 2nd century CE. He is best known for his collection of satirical poems known as the Satires of which the 6th Satire is the most famous.

Ambraseys (2009) citing Downey (1961b:213 n. 59) states that Juvenal may have referred to the Trajan Quake in his 6th Satire.
