The article deals with the passages of the Ilias Latina regarding Hecuba and Andromache (vv. 543­-52, 564­-74, 1015­-19 and 1057-­62). The analysis, enriched by a parallel with the Greek model and the Aeneid, shows a reduction of the role of these fgures, which are primarily described as Hector’s mother and wife and equipped with the typical virtues of a Roman woman.

Abstract

The article deals with the passages of the Ilias Latina regarding Hecuba and Andromache (vv. 543­-52, 564­-74, 1015­-19 and 1057-­62). The analysis, enriched by a parallel with the Greek model and the Aeneid, shows a reduction of the role of these fgures, which are primarily described as Hector’s mother and wife and equipped with the typical virtues of a Roman woman.
