<i>In historiae specimen</i> (Apul. <i>Met.</i> 8.1.4): elementi della letteratura storio-grafica nelle <i>Metamorfosi</i> di Apuleio

Published September 10, 2015


Images and vocabulary derived from historiography abound in Apuleius’ novel, especially in the episode of Lucius and the greengrocer (9.32-38): their relevance shows that the author’s scope goes far beyond  parody. Exact quotations are limited to Sallustius, with the aim of elevating the style.
