Abstract

The aim of this paper is to offer a re-reading of the portrait of the young Ovid as a student of rhetoric and declaimer sketched out by Seneca the Elder (contr. II 2, 8-12). A thorough analysis of the informations provided by Seneca may allow a more precise understading of Ovid's rhetorical training and a better-grounded evaluation of its significance for Ovid's later poetic career.
