    On a Newly Discovered Acrostic in Virgil ( Ecl. 4.9–11): The ‘Tenth’ Age.Neil Adkin - 2024 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 168 (1):26-41.
    A syllabic acrostic (de-ca-te, “tenth”) has recently been discovered by Leah Kronenberg at Eclogue 4.9–11. The aim of the present article is to adduce further evidence for the intentionality of this acrostic. The article begins by pointing to corroborative clues in the text encompassed by the acrostic itself. Attention is then drawn to the overlooked deni‑acrostic in the previous Eclogue (3.55–58). This acrostical deni, for whose intentionality arguments are likewise adduced, evidently serves to corroborate acrostical decate. This deni‑acrostic is itself (...)

  4. ΛΥΣΙΜΕΛΗΣ: Überlegungen zu existenzieller Körperlichkeit und literarischen Strategien von Homer bis Platon.Thomas Kuhn-Treichel - 2024 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 168 (1):1-25.
    The adjective λυσιμελής (“limb-loosening”) and related statements about bodies dissolving or melting are found in Greek literature in an astonishing variety of contexts, above all in relation to sleep, death and erotic desire. The present paper asks what made the idea of (limbs) loosening so attractive for authors and it traces their use from early Greek epic (Homer and Hesiod) through lyric (Archilochus, Alcman, Sappho, Ibycus, Anacreon and Pindar) to Plato’s Phaedrus. This brings several factors to light: the adjective and (...)

  5. Come lavorava Lucano? Su possibili varianti d’autore nel Bellum civile.Ambra Russotti - 2024 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 168 (1):70-91.
    That authorial variants survive in the transmission of the works of Lucan is a hypothesis legitimated by some objective data, yet the problem has been given very little attention in research since the important discussion by Fraenkel (1926). The present paper offers an analysis of the question that starts from the cases already identified and discussed by Fraenkel, adding some examples newly identified here. In particular, the goal is not to discuss single cases evaluated separately, but rather to examine the (...)

    Juvencus’ Präsenz im Proömium des Cento Probae: ein bisher unbemerkter Fall akustischer Imitation.Ana Clara Sisul - 2024 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 168 (1):92-105.
    In the prooemium of the Cento Vergilianus de Laudibus Christi of Faltonia Betitia Proba (lines 1–23) there are fragments not only of Vergil’s works but also of Lucan’s Bellum Civile and Juvencus’ Evangeliorum Libri. This article shows that in these lines Juvencus has a particular importance, for the references to his work increase until they reach a remarkable intensity in lines 22–23 and they stand out on different levels both formally and semantically. This thesis is supported by re-examining the origin (...)
