This paper analyses Lucian’s Dialogues of the Sea Gods 1 and 2 – both of them dealing with the myth of Polyphemus – under a double perspective: intertextual and intervisual. On the one hand, it clarifies the ways in which specific literary models are transposed into a dialogic form, according to a variety of adaptation strategies, ranging from nearly absolute fidelity (this is the case of DMar. 2, based on Od. IX 181-566) to a genuine ‘remake’ (DMar. 1, an adaptation of Theocr. 6 and 11, with a change in the situations and the points of view). On the other hand, it shows how Lucian, in constructing his Cyclops, appeals to the visual memory of his audience almost in the same way in which he urges their literary memory.
