In the last decades, pioneering studies argued that the debt owed by Vergil to the Homeric epic is not disjunct from a knowledge of the Hellenistic exegetical tradition on the part of the Latin poet. In more recent times, the same kind of sophisticated relationship was explored for Horace and the Greek archaic lyrics as well as for Ovid and Homer. In this paper, after a  survey on the spread of the Greek literary culture and scholarship in Rome under Augustus, three study-cases are proposed of possible Ovid’s reception of mythical traditions in the Metamorphoses under the influence of the Alexandrian exegesis on Pindar.
