Abstract

Through sophisticated strategies of allusion, typical of his poetics, Aratus invites us not to miss the identification of the constellation of the Horse with Pegasus, the winged horse generated from Medea's blood, as well the horse who originated the spring Hippocrene. The constellation takes an extraordinary significance and becomes a symbol of poetic inspiration.
Arato; Pegaso
