Fabrizio Oppedisano rounds off his Anthemius project with the publication of a diptych consisting of a monograph on the Panegyric of Anthemius (see previous post) and a multi-author volume of essays: Procopio Antemio, imperatore di Roma, Bari: Edipuglia, 2020.
In a new article, Marco Onorato has identified Prudentius and Paulinus of Nola in Carm. 1. See Bibliography, tab 2019.
Abstract. In the preface to Sidonius’ panegyric of Anthemius the expression variae … hostia linguae (c. 1.29) discloses a contamination of lexical and thematic features of Prud. perist. 10 and Paul. Nol. c. 18. Starting from these allusive marks it is possible to reconstruct further elements of the poem’s Christian subtext, which brings out the ambiguity of Sidonius’ attitude towards the emperor.
Francesco Montone has added another article to his Anthemius series, this time on his education: ‘Un principe coltissimo. L’Imperatore Antemio (467-472) nel Panegirico di Sidonio Apollinare’, Salternum 42-43 (2019) 43-56.
In Vichiana 56-1, 33-60, Francesco Montone just published: ‘Il Panegirico ad Antemio di Sidonio Apollinare: metapoetica e intratestualità’.

At the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, Fabrizio Oppedisano is running a project on the emperor Anthemius. On 8 June, a symposium was held on the subject (see flyer). The project also includes a translation and commentary of Sidonius’ Panegyric (Carm. 1-2), to be published next year.
