MORENO, Agustín. Reflections on the Use of the Iliupersis Motive in Livy’s Narrative of the Fall of Veii. Nova tellus [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.1, pp.59-85. ISSN 0185-3058.

The paper pretends to contribute to the study of the explicit allusion to the parallel of the fall of Troy with the fall of Veii in Livy’s narrative. With the goal of making the analysis of the issue more complex, which lately has been thought, mainly, in a literary framework, the proposal here is to consider, besides the previous approach, information that surpasses the aforesaid framework, so as to achieve a more complex understanding of the reasons why Livy uses the referred parallel in this episode.

Keywords : Livy; Veientes; Etruscans; Trojans; Iliupersis.
