The article explores the relationship between Longinus and Caecilius and their range of model specimens. Longinus has a particular interest in Plato, not to defend him but, exploiting his canonical status, to present him as a prime example of the flawed genius. Plato illustrates a style whose rich amplitude carries risks but which proves that sublimity need not always include strong emotion. Caecilius recognised a narrower range of style and his prime model was Demosthenes (Lysias is irrelevant). The article exploits an undervalued source, Tiberius' On Figures in Demosthenes, and argues that there is influence from Caecilius not only in §§43-8, but also in the use of non-Demosthenic examples in §§26-35.
