Abstract

The analysis, focused on the ‘degeneration’ of Neoptolemus (Aen. II 540-543, 547-550), is extended to rhetorical and grammatical surviving sources which testify to the recovery of the locus. The “original” plea, made pathetic by Vergil and traced back to the ancient aristocratic code of genealogical continuity, is in Quintilian and in scholiasts (Servius, Servius auctus and Tib. Cl. Donatus) a common rhetorical judicial interpretation, that promotes and helps to establish the importance of cultural paradigm of γένος as celebrated by the poet.
