Chapter Summary

This index of places provides a list of terms that are classified under various titles, including CIL (Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum), Homeric Hymns, Herodotus and Lucretius that have been mentioned in this book Ovid in Exile. As the pendant to Ovids representation of himself as a grief-stricken poet in exile, the Tristia and Epistulae ex Ponto also enshrine an image of the Roman princeps as an angry god of retribution. Ovid draws this image by engaging with both contemporary historical events and the tradition of Greek and Roman poetry. This book traces this engagement along several lines crucial for understanding Ovids poetry generally and the Tristia and Epistulae ex Ponto in particular. It offers an analysis of the religious aspects of these poems because they document for the first time in Latin literature worship within an inchoate form of the cult of the Caesars.

Keywords: cult of the Caesars; Greek and Roman poetry; Latin literature; Ovid; Roman princeps
