LUDUM ARTAVERAT. On Petronius, Satyrica 85.4

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review


Abstract: This study presents linguistic and content-based evidence indicating that the transmitted reading quia dies sollemnis ludum artaverat in Petronius, Satyrica 85.4 should not be considered a corruption and that no emendation is required. It is proposed that this passage should be interpreted as “since the festival had shortened the time at the gymnasium” or “the time of the tuition”.
