  2. Why Humans Do Not Cast Off Old Skin Like Snakes. Knowledge and Eternal Youth in Nicander’s Theriaca.Olga Chernyakhovskaya - 2021 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 165 (2):225-240.
    In Theriaca 343–358, Nicander recounts a rather unusual myth. After Prometheus had stolen fire, Zeus was seeking the thief and, when men delivered Prometheus over to him, he gave them the gift of youth. Humans entrusted the ass to carry this load, but the ass was seized by thirst and sought the help of the snake, who demanded in return the thing he was carrying on his back. This is how the gift of youth given to men fell to the (...)

  3. Penthemimeral Elision in Tragic Trimeters.James T. Clark - 2021 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 165 (2):189-204.
    This paper provides a statistical survey of the incidence of elision at the penthemimeral caesura in the iambic trimeters of Greek tragedy. It updates and builds on the work of Descroix by considering the rates of elision of different types of words: lexicals, nonlexical polysyllables, and nonlexical monosyllables. While all tragedians elide less at the caesura than throughout the line, in Aeschylus the rate of this reduction is far greater for lexicals and polysyllabic nonlexicals than it is for monosyllabic nonlexicals. (...)

  4. Letture e lezioni frontoniane nell’epistolario di Simmaco.Sara Fascione - 2021 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 165 (2):260-272.
    This study aims to define the ways in which the work of Fronto circulated and was used in the intellectual circles of the fourth century A.D. through the testimony offered by the letters of Symmachus. In addressing illustrious members of the senatorial aristocracy of his time, Symmachus echoes Fronto’s work several times. The examination of Symm. Ep. 3.11 to Naucellius, with special reference to the expression spectator tibi veteris monetae solus supersum in Symm. Ep. 3.11.2, allows us to evaluate how (...)

  6. Love Motifs in Prudentius.Rosario Moreno Soldevila - 2021 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 165 (2):295-312.
    By analysing three paradigmatic passages, this paper explores how Prudentius uses classical love motifs and imagery not only to lambast paganism, but also as a powerful rhetorical tool to convey his Christian message. The ‘fire of love’ imagery is conspicuous in Psychomachia 53–57, which wittily blends Christian and erotic language. In an entirely different context, the flamma amoris is also fully exploited to depict lustful young Vestal Virgins, in combination with other classical metaphors of passion, such as the ‘wound of (...)

  8. Tiberius Aequatus Augusto : Augustan Intertexts for Tiberius’ Moderatio in Velleius Paterculus 2.94.1 and 2.122.1.Christoph Pieper - 2021 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 165 (2):241-259.
    This paper comments on the tension between constant imitatio and refused aemulatio gloriae in Tiberius’ attitude towards Augustus in Velleius Paterculus’ History. I argue that Tiberius is equalling and eventually even surpassing Augustus precisely because he refuses to compete with him, let alone surpass him. In order to do so, I focus on two hitherto neglected Augustan intertexts, which are referenced at very distinct moments of Velleius’ portrayal of Tiberius. The first is the moment when Tiberius appears on the political (...)

  9. The New Consul and the Eagles of Jupiter: Poetics and Propaganda in Claudian’s Preface to the Panegyric for Mallius Theodorus.Álvaro Sánchez-Ostiz - 2021 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 165 (2):273-294.
    This article proposes an interpretation of Claudian’s preface to his Panegyric for Mallius Theodorus that places the poem in the communicative context of its recitation and in the literary frame of the panegyric. An analysis of the political messages in both poems, the panegyric and its brief ‘paratext’, reveals that the preface consistently uses the myth of the two eagles of Jupiter to indicate symbolically that the new consul is still upholding ‘genuine’ Hellenic culture in the West. This interpretation illustrates (...)

    This paper proposes a new conjecture for Solon fr. 12 G.-P.2. In this, as in other poems, Solon shows a clear desire to present himself as an expert in the political milieu and to serve as a guide for the community of Athens. The politician’s penetrating gaze, his far-sighted νόος, is able to grasp in nuce the development of political dynamics which, if they prevail, could mean the ruin of the city as a whole. Solon frames his νόος as an (...)

    Nicht Wissen ist auch Macht. Zur Gesprächsdynamik der Eingangsszene in Platons Kratylos.Kathrin Winter - 2021 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 165 (2):205-224.
    In the introductory scene of Plato’s Cratylus a power game takes place that is based on an asymmetrical distribution of knowledge and which determines the dynamics of the communication. Since Cratylus claims to have greater knowledge than Hermogenes, he puts his discussion partner in an inferior position. Hermogenes strives to balance out this power differential by different strategies. One such strategy is that of including Socrates in the discussion. Socrates reacts to the power differential that Cratylus has built up in (...)

    Bemerkungen zur Ektheosis Arsinoes des Kallimachos: Gattung, Struktur und Inhalt.Zsolt Adorjáni - 2021 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 165 (1):2-24.
    This article aims to present an overall interpretation of a poem by Callimachus that centres on the dead Ptolemaic queen Arsinoe II. Firstly the position of the Ektheosis Arsinoes in Callimachus’ œuvre, the genre to which it belongs and its structure will be investigated. This leads to the analysis of the highly allusive character of the work. In addition, realia and textual difficulties arising from the fragmentary transmisson will also be treated. The appendix discusses a hitherto unnoticed testimony to the (...)

    I “mali futuri” e non solo: possibili riprese tucididee in Dexippo e Eliodoro.Enrico Cerroni - 2021 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 165 (1):58-67.
    The reception of the work of Thucydides in late antique authors constitutes a huge chapter of allusions and reworkings, on methodological, structural, lexical levels and more. A fortiori, certain particularly famous passages by the historian are well suited for a study of their reception, above all where key terms or rare expressions are concentrated. The case of the adjective ἀλγεινός, a poeticism declined twice in the epitaphios of Pericles offers interesting material of this kind in the work of Dexippus, the (...)

    Das Motiv der Schlaftötung in der antiken Literatur und Ikonographie.Justine Diemke - 2021 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 165 (1):68-89.
    Killing a sleeping person is a popular motif in world literature and can be found already in the Iliad, with the murder of the sleeping Rhesus. The present paper surveys the motif of killing a sleeper in Greek and Roman literature and in iconography, where the dastardliness of the deed is clearly accentuated. The sleeping chamber was hard for outsiders to access, for which reason this method of killing was prioritised by certain groups, such as slaves and women. In the (...)

    In the paper the fragment transmitted by Ausonius and ascribed to Quintus Cicero on the signs of the zodiac is analysed in terms of language, transmission history and intertextuality. As a result, authorship by Q. Cicero must be regarded with great scepticism.

    „Alles ist in Gott“ – Überlegungen zur bestimmenden theologischen Denkform des Corpus Hermeticum.Benedikt Krämer - 2021 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 165 (1):37-57.
    Given the Corpus Hermeticum’s history of formation, it has prompted the attempt to separate layers or groups of writings within the collection of treatises. This process of division, which was for the most part undertaken on criteria of content, has been viewed rather negatively by the more recent research, on grounds of method. Given the discovery of numerous doctrinal contents that remain constant across different treatises, increased efforts are being made to reconstruct the Corpus’s moments of unity. The present paper (...)

    La Theoxenia Eleusina di Fasti 4.503‒62: Alcune considerazioni sulle fonti e sui caratteri distintivi del testo ovidiano. [REVIEW]Luciano Pasquali - 2021 - Philologus: Zeitschrift für Antike Literatur Und Ihre Rezeption 165 (1):90-113.
    The two versions of the myth of Ceres and Proserpina produced by Ovid at Fasti 4.417‒618 and Metamorphoses 5.341–661 have played an exceptionally important role for the knowledge and transmission of this episode in Western culture, from an anthropological and religious point of view but above all from an artistic and literary one. Nonetheless, the complexity of the two texts still confronts modern readers with questions and points to investigate. The present article, devoted specifically to the episode of the divine (...)
