Abstract

Allusions to Thais in Ovid and Propertius reflect both the cultural position of Menander at Rome and the allusive practices of New Comedy itself. Discrepancies between these allusions and the preserved fragments show the influence of Roman Comedy and cast doubt on their value as evidence for the Greek play./Les allusions à Thaïs chez Ovide et Properce reflètent d'une part la place culturelle de Ménandre à Rome et d'autre part la pratique de l'allusion caractéristique de la Nouvelle Comédie. Les divergences entre ces allusions et les fragments conservés de Ménandre démontrent l'influence de la comédie romaine chez ces auteurs latins. Ces écarts remettent de plus en question la valeur de ces allusions en tant que reflets de la comédie grecque.
