Abstract

In Claudian's panegyric on the occasion of the consulship of Olybrius and Probinus, the speech delivered by the goddess Roma concludes with the wish that the Ganges, conquered, may flow between Roman towns. This wish has links not only with the image, in the laudatio of Gratian by Symmachus (Or. 3.9), of the conquered Rhine flowing between Roman fortresses, but also with the language of the closing line of the laudes Italiae of Vergil (G. 2.176), from which it picks up the words Romarza per oppida. It is thus connected by some notable thematic links to the wider contexts in which these brief passages are inscribed within the works of Symmachus and Vergil. The similarities between Roma's wish and both the laudatio of Gratian and the laudes Italiae thus invite us to reflect upon some complex ways in which the poetry of Claudian may have made use of the literary tradition and have been received by its audience.
