This paper focuses on Ovid as an interpreter of Vergil's Aeneidin Metamorphoses 13. Ovid "corrects," or "comments on," Vergil's text in a way that sometimes presupposes an awareness of the presence of critical and exegetical quaestiones that we also find attested to in the ancient exegetical tradition as represented in the Servian commentary. The paper follows Aeneas's voyage in Aen. 3 and Met. 13 from Thrace to the Strophades, focusing especially on the death of Polydorus, the departure from Thrace, the Delos stopover, and the encounter with the Harpies.

Abstract

This paper focuses on Ovid as an interpreter of Vergil's Aeneidin Metamorphoses 13. Ovid "corrects," or "comments on," Vergil's text in a way that sometimes presupposes an awareness of the presence of critical and exegetical quaestiones that we also find attested to in the ancient exegetical tradition as represented in the Servian commentary. The paper follows Aeneas's voyage in Aen. 3 and Met. 13 from Thrace to the Strophades, focusing especially on the death of Polydorus, the departure from Thrace, the Delos stopover, and the encounter with the Harpies.
