When studying the presence of Hesiod in Plutarch’s work, one notices a strong focus on the theme of justice, divine justice in particular. Investigating Hesiod’s citations within De sera numinis vindicta, this chapter aims, firstly, to evaluate the use and function of the Hesiodic verses in this pamphlet dedicated to divine justice and, secondly, to examine the theme of justice, as dealt with in De sera num., through an intertextual approach, in order to identify within the scholia on Hesiod’s Erga some sections that can be considered fragments of Plutarch’s Commentary on Hesiod’s Erga.
