Nota a Verg., Aen. 10.800: El escudo como clave de lectura del enfrentamiento desigual entre Eneas y Lauso

Published July 17, 2019


The motif of the unfair fight in the encounter between Lausus and Aeneas finds forceful expression in Vergil’s prolepsis (mox illos sua fata manent maiore sub hosteAen. 10.438), as well as in Aeneas’ concerned warning (… maioraque viribus audes,10.811). In this article, we discuss another sign of asymmetry: the variation in the nomenclature of both character’s shields: clipeus vs. parma.
