Silius (T. Catius Silius Italicus), AD 25-101, was consul in 68 and governor of the province of Asia in 69; he sought no further office but lived thereafter on his estates as a literary man and collector. He revered the work of Cicero, whose Tusculan villa he owned, and that of Virgil, whose tomb at Naples he likewise owned and near which he lived. His epic Punica, in 17 books, on the second War with Carthage (218-202 BC), is based for facts largely on Livy's account. Conceived as a contrast between two great nations (and their supporting gods), championed by the two great heroes Scipio and Hannibal, his poem is written in pure Latin and smooth verse filled throughout with echoes of Virgil above all (and other poets); it exploits with easy grace, but little genius, all the devices and techniques of traditional Latin epic. -- Jacket

Silius Italicus' Punica, a Latin epic poem on the second Punic war written at the end of the first century CE, is one of the few Roman historical epics to survive from antiquity. This volume represents the first full-length scholarly commentary in any language on Book 2 of the seventeen-book epic and accompanies a recent resurgence in scholarly interest in the Punica. It includes an extensive introduction to the poem's historical and literary contexts, along with the fullLatin text and apparatus criticus, English translation, and detailed line-by-line commentary. The introduction situates Silius in historiographical and literary tradition, while the commentary addresses a broad range of textual, linguistic, literary, and cultural topics. Discussion ofintertextuality focuses especially on the poem's adaptation of earlier epic tradition, including the poems of Homer, Virgil, Ovid, Lucan, Valerius Flaccus, and Statius. The text and apparatus criticus have been updated since the publication of Josef Delz's Teubner edition of the Punica in 1987 toinclude a much more comprehensive account of emendation history. The result is a keenly focused and cutting-edge critical edition that will be an invaluable resource for scholars and students of Silius Italicus and the Punica for years to come
