Da Ilio a Roma in due epigrammi di Germanico (A.P. IX 387 e A.L. 708 R.)

Marco Scaffai

Abstract


Germanicus’ epigram on Hector’s tomb (AL 708 Riese2) is a Latin version of the Greek original transmitted as AP 9.387, probably written by either Germanicus himself or a poet from his circle. It is just one of the many variations on the theme of Rome as Troy’s heir, without further political intentions.

Keywords


Germanicus; Hector; Troy; Greek and Latin epigram
