Dall'epitaffio al sogno: dal Marcello di Properzio al Pompeo di Lucano
In the well-known episode of Pompey's dream before the battle of Pharsalus (BC 7,7 ff.), Lucan used a section of the elegy written by Propertius (3,18,9 ff.) to celebrate the premature death of Marcellus, nephew of Augustus and his designated heir. This elegiac model, hitherto never reported, serves to better understand the overall meaning of one of the most famous passages of Lucan's poem.
