This thesis explores the declamatory works of Pseudo-Quintilian and Seneca the Elder (specially Major Declamations 3 and Controversiae 5.6) with particular attention being placed upon the representation of the male victims of sexual assault.

These explorations are then paralleled with modern sensibilities towards the same subject.

The goal of this writing is to illustrate the purpose of declamation as a literary source, the way in which said declamation reveals key characteristics of Roman society and how these characteristics compare to modern approaches towards this topic.
