The topos of the drunken bath, used so vividly by Juvenal to convey the idea of vitiated appetite, points to a depravity in the management both of the body and of the oikos. The wealth of the farm, which in the idyllic picture of plenty stays always within its confines and acts there to satisfy natural need, has generated a negative abundance that culminates in the perverse use of wealth.
