Abstract

When making an allusion, a poet can choose to make the line numbering (stichometry) correspond with that of the source. A handful of examples in Roman poetry have been proposed, mostly in Virgil. This short paper collects these examples together and proposes a new one, in which Dido's appeal to the Furies in the Aeneid matches up with Medea's appeal to the Erinyes in Apollonius' Argonautica.
