‘La chiamiamo con entrambi i nomi’: eponimia ed eteronimia tra Nemesis e Adrasteia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Starting from a passage by Ammiano Marcellino (XIV 11,25), which reveals an evident overlap between the figure of Adrasteia and that of Nemesis, the contribution aims to examine the reasons that led the two powers to be indicated l 'one as the heteronym of the other. Starting from the sources of the fifth century up to the paremyography and lexicography of the imperial age, a path is reconstructed which aims to show the accidents and the multiple variables to which the logic of naming the divine, in the Greek world, can be subject.
