Da dove viene Evandro? Genealogie, topografia e culti in Virgilio digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM - 2011 - 1
SUMMARY: Aim of this paper is to explain the reason why Virgil gives many topographical references about the homeland of Evander. The numerous relations between northern and southern Arcadia and the Latium are to be taken into consideration in order to discover the different stages of Evander’s life and connected places (Pheneos, Pallantion, and Pallanteum). Special attention is paid to the various genealogies linking together Evander and the Trojans or Evander and the Atridae. The status and genealogy of Nikostrate/Carmenta is also analysed.
