Complete registryShow full item record
The autor of this paper attemps to seek the possible sources in which Virgil might have found inspiration to modify the Nevian tradition, which mentions just a single Aeneas' vessel, turning this vessel into a fleet of twenty. This study also intends to identify a possible source that support the number of twelve vessels that came to Libya and the omen that enlosed them. This paper also attempts to identify the sources that may support the idea that the wood that the hero used to build the vesels had a divine origen and was protected by Cybeles. The analysis of these hypotetical sources are combined with data from Augusts' life.
