This paper analyzes the intertextuality between the competition among the Muses over the aetiology of April in the Sacri Fasti of the Renaissance Latin poet Ambrogio Novidio Fracco and on the one hand Ovid’s similar scene at the start of Book 5 of his Fasti and on the other the poet’s spirited defense of Venus against an alternative aition in Fasti 4. Fracco’s contaminatio of the two Ovidian episodes at the same time engages theologically with the ancient pagan exemplar of calendrical poetry. Unlike Ovid’s discordant Muses, those of Fracco disagree with one another only temporarily, until one of them persuades her sisters to embrace a Christian world-view.
