Diogene di Apollonia e le Nuvole di Aristofane: nota intorno alle origini di un problema storiografico digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2009 - 9
Anno: 2009
The article belongs to a broader project of a wide ranging reconsideration of the Pre-Socratic philosopher Diogenes of Apollonia. We challenge here Diels' view according to which Diogenes acts in the frame of Aristophanes' Clouds as a kind of a ghost thinker, hidden in the shadow of "Socrates"' character. Such a view, which is usually accepted, comes out to misrepresent Diogenes as a thinker, putting him in the worse possible light in the eyes of scholars in history of philosophy. For our sake, we focus on the water-crescent passage, probably the best supposed argument in favour of Diels' claim. We thus contrast "Socrates" ' alleged lächerliche Theorie, as Diels calls it, with Diogenes' fragments (collected by Laks 1983, 2008). In the whole, we find much more differences than similarities. This is hardly a surprising. In spite of his prominent role in Aristotle's corpus, Diogenes is never mentioned in Athens' fifth century literature, and it is even not sure that he could have been a significant target there. We thus confirm Kahn's 1997 assessment: "the influence of Diogenes on Athenian thought of the fifth century seems to be a figment of modern scholarship without basis in the text".

The Readership of Leucippe and Clitophon: The Test-case of the Anonymous Narrator digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2009 - 9
Anno: 2009
The diversity of the extant novels and their different provenance and dating make it difficult and irresponsible to reach a simple conclusion about the readership of all of them. This paper explores the encounter of an anonymous narrator and Clitophon with which Achilles Tatius opens up his Leucippe and Clitophon, a (fictional) internal audience, focusing on the three roles played by the narrator (storyteller, inducer of the main narrative and listener to Clitophon’s long account) and compares them with what we know about the readership of the genre. The first narrator presents himself as a limited pepaideumenos, similar to an average reader, more interested in enjoying a good fictional narrative than in analysing it philosophically, though there are enough learned cues in his intervention to satisfy a reader who is looking for an intellectual past-time.

Templum in aëre, templum in caelo, templum in terris digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2009 - 9
Anno: 2009
Item 1 - In Livy I 18,6-10 augur’s templum in aëre is most likely oriented southward, just like Varro’s templum in caelo (L.L. VII 6-8); yet Varro’s templum in caelo and templum in terris must not be confused with Livy’s templum in aëre. Livy’s sentence “prospectu in urbem agrumque capto” concerns the orientation, not the founding of the templum in aëre. Item 2 - Looking into Varro’s account (L.L. VII, 8-9), it comes out that Varro’s templum in terris corresponds with Livy’s signum (I 18, 8); it is delimited by two trees in the middle of the templum in aëre and coincide with the oxyopic center of human field of vision. Item 3 - Although Romans might have used the Etruscan templum, they most likely used the templum in aëre both for the observation of lightnings and the observation of birds. Item 4.1 - The phrases “in urbem agrumque” (Liv. I 18,7) and “urbemque et agros” (Cic., De Leg. II 21) can not mean pomerium. Item 4.2 - In the tale about Attus Navius’ vineyard (Cic. De Div. I 31; Dion.Hal. Ant.Rom. III 70, 2-3) some scholars have erroneously confused the vineyard with the templum in aëre.

Spunti di riflessione su alcuni aspetti letterari della rappresentazione della nobiltà in Sen. benef. IV 30-31 digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2009 - 9
Anno: 2009
Preliminary observations on Sen. Benef. IV 30-31: Seneca pleads the cause of noblemen, though degenerated, in matters of political advantage over homines novi, being at odds not only with Sallust’s and Juvenal’s blame against the privileges of nobility but with philosophical precepts too. Howewer, Seneca’s attitude presents a diacronic evaluation of virtue, is ethically subordinated to spur to benefits, and represents a theoretical justification of an opinion deeply rooted in Roman society.

Comments on Nova, Mortifera vestis digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2015 - 15
Anno: 2015
In her article Mortifera vestis, Nova succeeds in showing that Aeschylus innovates in making Agamemnon’s fatal robe an overgarment rather than a chiton. His objective was probably to associate Agamemnon strongly with the ideas of great wealth and luxury. Nova is also right to argue that Seneca’s version of Agamemnon’s murder is based, directly or indirectly, on a pre-Aeschylean account. Her other propositions are not persuasive...
