Maenius absentem Novium cum carperet (Horace, Satires 1.3.21): Characters, Places, Monuments


Abstract


In this paper I propose to explore the relations between two well-known monuments in the Roman Forum, the Columna Maenia and the Marsyas, starting with a passage from Horace's Satires 1.3, 21-3. As is known, the two monuments are closely associated with the Republican history of Rome, and it is worth tracing these links briefly before moving on to a more in-depth consideration in relation to Horace.
