This article aims at showing the presence of a literary allusion to Virgil in Petron. 68, 1-2. The changing of the individual tables assigned to Trimalchio’s guests and his subsequent wordplay are a well-constructed reference to the prodigy of the eating of the tables described in Aen. VII 107-129 and to Celaeno’s oracle in Aen. III 250-257. In this passage, through his actions and words, Trimalchio is once again trying to show off his literary knowledge by challenging the superior culture of the scholastici invited for dinner.
