PEGOLO, Liliana. Does Ausonius’s Griphus Ternarii Numeri: Rhetorical Game or Gnostic-Neoplatonic Miscellany?. Nova tellus [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.1, pp.87-107. ISSN 0185-3058.

The Griphus Ternarii Numeri, by Decimus Ausonius (c. IV a. C.), is a short poem that it inserts in the spirit of their age, traversed by Gnostic and Neoplatonic currents. From these statements, the objective of the analysis is going to focus on resolving the thematic and ideological boundaries of this rhetorical lusus, consistent with a heterogeneous set of philosophical ideas in which the Neoplatonism participates and that the Christian Church itself can’t avoid to discuss the Trinitarian concept.

Keywords : Ausonius; Symmachus; rhetor; Neoplatonism; Enigma.
