Sulla potuit, ego non potero? (Cic. Att. 9, 10, 2). Il mito di Silla tra Pompeo e Cesare

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Silla soon becomes a real exemplum, precious, also for its flexibility, to build a framework for the interpretation of reality. And on the other hand, the events of Silla seem not by chance also to constitute an excellent dossier on which to baste school exercises. Pompey and Caesar are still confronted with the myth of Silla, especially in the reflection of Cicero who does not fail to associate the syllable traits of Caesar to the predictable 'sillanity' of the Great.
