Mondin on Epigram

Luca Mondin has contributed a chapter on late Latin epigrams to Christer Henriksén (ed.), A Companion to Ancient Epigram, Hoboken, NJ: Wiley-Blackwell, 2019.

“This chapter focuses on the late antique Latin epigrams of secular inspiration composed between the third and fifth century ce. It examines the repertoire and authors that have reached us (Carmina XII sapientum, Ausonius, Epigrammata Bobiensia, Claudian, Sidonius Apollinaris, Ennodius) and illustrates the modes of circulation of epigrams, including the use of collections and different literary contexts.”
