Paolo Monella, L'autorità e le sue contraddizioni: Numa nei Fasti di Ovidio

This article shows how the few, but significant negative aspects of the figure of Numa in the historiographical tradition are dealt with in the Fasti. The ideological and broadly cultural implications of the ovidian treatment of the Numa character are explored, especially in relation with his discourse on the Einzelherrschaft in the late Augustan age
