  1. Schulübungen oder Kalenderblätter? Zur Interpretation einer Gruppe spätantiker Kulthymnen in der Appendix Claudianea.Martin M. Bauer - 2022 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 166 (1):134-149.
    Until now, the short cult hymns to Liber, Mars and Juno in the Appendix Claudianea have mostly been seen as rhetorical school exercises. Yet a philological-historical analysis shows that they could be remains of occasional poetry from everyday life. The hymns are structured according to the Roman festival calendar and, on the basis of language and content, should probably be dated to the final phase of public non-Christian cult practice in the fourth century. The anonymous poet was familiar with classical (...)

  2. A New Emendation for Matavitatau in Petronius’ Satyricon.Tiziano Boggio - 2022 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 166 (1):99-117.
    In this paper I propose an emendation for a long-standing textual problem in the Satyricon. In the Cena Trimalchionis one of the freedmen, Niceros, recounts a bizarre story, culminating in a frightening encounter between him and a werewolf. In a desperate attempt to escape peril, Niceros draws his sword to repel horrific shadows and utters a sequence of eleven letters which has puzzled scholars for more than a century: matavitatau. I propose a correction which hypothesizes the presence of a verb (...)

  3. Tra gli Inferi e le stelle: un problema testuale nel mito di Orfeo in Virgilio (georg. 4,509) e il Leitmotiv astronomico nelle catabasi da Omero a Dante. [REVIEW]Francesca Boldrer - 2022 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 166 (1):63-84.
    The article treats the presence of stars in terrestrial landscapes, in opposition to the Underworld and in connection to the topos of katabasis, above all in order to pursue in more depth a textual problem in the fabula Orphei of Vergil’s Georgics. The philological question is approached both on the basis of context and in relation to the descent into Hades of Aeneas, as well as in diachronic comparison with the earlier Homeric katabasis of Odysseus and the later otherworldly voyage (...)

  4. Doctus Amyclas. I Presagi Della Tempesta in Luc. 5.539‒560 Tra Epica, Poesia Didascalica E Retorica.Nicolò Campodonico - 2022 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 166 (1):85-98.
    In response to Caesar, who intends to reach Antonius in Italy, the boatman Amyclas sets out the celestial and terrestrial signs that foretell a storm and advises against putting out to sea. In this speech Lucan draws on the treatment of such phenomena in the didactic poems of Aratus and Vergil, but the allusions are remodelled in epic language and adapted to the narrative context of the episode. Further, in the story of Amyclas Lucan develops dramatic ideas mentioned in the (...)

    A Note on the Platonist Boethus: In Light of New Evidence From the Syriac Tradition.Tianqin Ge - 2022 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 166 (1):1-12.
    This article re-examines the identity and chronology of the lexicographer Boethus, by analyzing three pieces of evidence. It is argued that the lexicographer Boethus is a Middle Platonist flourishing in the late first or early second century, who believed in the transmigration of souls and was engaged in exegesis of Plato. In particular, this article draws attention to a testimony on Boethus from a newly discovered treatise preserved in Syriac, which is identified as Porphyry’s On Principles and Matter.

  6. Pater Vulkan: Martial Als Vergil-Interpret in Epigramm 5,7.Delila Jordan - 2022 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 166 (1):118-133.
    The paper presented here treats a hitherto unnoticed intertextual allusion in Mart. 5,7,7 to Verg. Aen. 8,394. Both lines contain two jokes at the expense of the smith-god Vulcan, by recalling the affairs of his wife Venus. First, the epic/epigrammatic speaker points to the well-known passage in Hom. Od. 8,266–363 in which Demodocus recounts the unpleasant – and for the other gods highly amusing – situation when Hephaestus caught his wife Aphrodite and her lover Ares in adultery with the help (...)

  8. Galeno sulla lunghezza di un’epitome da Didimo: De indolentia 24 a BJP (= 121–122 KS). ἐν ἑξακισχιλίοις στίχοις versus ἐν ἓξ βιβλίοις. [REVIEW]Lorenzo Perilli - 2022 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 166 (1):13-21.
    The article proposes a correction of a passage of Galen’s De indolentia, alternative to the one accepted so far. The correction ἐν ἓξ βιβλίοις is proposed, as alternative to the text hitherto accepted, itself due to a conjectural intervention, ἐν ἑξακισχιλίοις στίχοις : the manuscript Vlatadon 14 bears an impossible ἐν ἑξακισχιλίοις βιβλίοις. At issue is the length of the epitome made by Galen of the lexicographical works of Didymus on the terminology of ancient comedy. The paper argues that the (...)

  10. Homerus sceptra potitus (Lucr. 3,1037–1038). De rerum natura als Hinführung zur Homerlektüre?Dorothea Weber - 2022 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 166 (1):22-44.
    De rerum natura displays a particular closeness to the Homeric epics on various levels: in language, in arguments, and in the selection of examples. This closeness clearly goes beyond similarities arising from the affinity as determined by genre. Further, a couple of passages are veritable translations from the Iliad resp. the Odyssey. There, the attitude towards the pretext becomes especially clear. It ranges from acknowledgement to rejection and in some instances is brought about through the use of allegory. This attitude (...)

  11. Ein überflüssiger und ein nur ansatzweise richtiger Eingriff in den überlieferten Text von Ciceros Schrift De fato.Hermann Weidemann - 2022 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 166 (1):45-62.
    In the present article, proposed corrections to two passages of Cicero’s treatise De fato are examined. It is shown that, on the one hand, a widely accepted correction for §27 that replaces the well attested reading vera fuerunt instantia... vera erunt instantia with vera fuerit instantia... vera erit instantia is unnecessary, and that, on the other hand, my recently suggested correction for §48, which replaces the obviously false reading Nam si atomis..., illud quoque... with Aut num, si atomis..., illud quoque...?, (...)
