Chapter Summary

This chapter examines a few episodes of the archaic period of Roman history told by Livy and Dionysius of Halicarnassus which seem to evoke themes of the Greek tragedy, and in particular the Theban saga. Several considerations are put forward to demonstrate that these literary reminiscences may well be ascribed to the early Roman annalistic tradition, and above all to Fabius Pictor.
