Abstract

The character of Orpheus as unhappy lover is part of the Hellenistic love elegy, but it appears in Latin poetry only with the Virgilian epyllion at the end of the Georgics. The scrutiny of several texts (Virgil's ecll. 2, 6, 8 and 10; the anonymous Lament for Bion; Hor. carm. 1, 24; Prop. 2, 34, 90/91; Ov. amor. 3, 9, 63/64) allows to assume the presence of Orpheus in Gallus' elegy and to guess his figure behind the Virgilian Orpheus.
