Abstract

Aeolism, the idea that Latin is a dialect of Greek, was a matter of debate among a wide range of authors and readers in the Roman world. Often interpreted psychoanalytically, the idea is better understood as articulating a grudging ancient awareness that languages and social groups, including seemingly distinct groups like "Greeks" and "Romans," are in fact always "mixed," and thus that identity is a matter offluid participation in shared social practices.
