Condition Report

Beautiful first Bodonian edition. The work is the extract of carmina 64, part of the Carmina docta of Catullus. It narrates the wedding of Teti and Peleo, from whose union the legendary Achille was born. Using the technique dear to the Alexandrians, Catullus in this poem also emphasizes the figure of Arianna and the sad event of his abandonment to Naxos.
