The article examines Greek-Latin bilingualism during the imperial period (I-IV century AD). In particular, given the existence of a bilingual educational system in the late republican period, this paper aims to investigate bilingualism not just as a rhetorical teaching method, but also as a marker of cultural identity. The analysis is mainly based on passages from Pliny the Younger, Apuleius, Ausonius, Paulinus from Pella, and Augustine.
