The Political Background To Ovid's Tristia 2

Classical Quarterly 25 (02):264- (1975)

Of these poems, Tristia 2 must be placed in a category by itself-if only because of its length and because it purports to be a plea by Ovid to Augustus, the man responsible for his exile, on the very practical matter of mitigating the sentence
