Abstract

Discussion of the tragic verse quoted by the declaimer Porcius Latro in the first Controversia of Seneca the Elder’s declamatory collection (‘cur fugis fratrem? scit ipse’). This anonymous fragment, deriving from an unidentified tragedy on the myth of Atreus and Thyestes, may belong to Varius Rufus’ Thyestes. The analysis of the rhetorical function of the quotation in Latro’s declamation means that we must preserve transmitted fugis against Bücheler’s fugit.
