Abstract

The article proposes an intertextual comparison between a passage from the poem De ave phoenice attributed to Lactance and a passage from Aeneid IV, in which a iunctura is used to deliberately recall Virgil, the scholastic poet par excellence. In particular, the phoenix’s gesture of reclining in the nest would remind Dido dying when she climbs the pyre, with an evident exchan ge of perspectives that shows the literary taste of the poet and the scholastic environment from which he comes.
