This article explores the relevance of bodily violation as a theme in the Risus Festival episode (Apuleius, Metamorphoses 3,1-12). It is discussed how this theme serves to make more dramatic the characterisation of the protagonist Lucius, who is passively dragged across the city of Hypata and is even threatened with torture and crucifixion, as well as increasing the vividness (euidentia) of Lucius’ defence and his accuser’s speech during the mock-trial.
