Abstract

I propose a new instance of ‘stichometric allusion’ (when poets allude to a source using corresponding line-numbers) in the Culex. This example (an allusion to Catullus 64) is notable because it spans two lines, and because it contains a repetition. Since this makes coincidence very unlikely, we can consider the possible motives and potential implications.
