In The Satyricon, the racy adventures of the impotent Encolpius and his friends and lovers provide the definitive portrait of the age of Nero. The Apocolocyntosis is a malicious skit on the "deification of Claudius the Clod," designed by Seneca to ingratiate himself with Claudius's successor, Nero.
