On this 2081st anniversary of Horace’s birth, let us pay homage to his genius, and free his work from his very assassin’s fraudulent additions.

We commemorate today the 2024th anniversary of Horace’s death. A murder? http://www.espace-horace.org/etud/maleuvre1.htm.

But for those still cherishing illusions about the relationship between Horace and Augustus, perhaps this short note could help.

It was on September 23, 63 BC, that the Emperor Augustus was born, a great exterminator of poets, and a "poet" himself in his hours, even if he had to attribute his productions to his own victims.

Exemplary in this respect is the case of Properce.

We commemorate today the sad anniversary of Virgil’s death. A good opportunity perhaps to revisit his famous epitaph:

Mantua me genuit, Calabri rapuere, tenet nunc

Parthenope. Cecini pascua, rura, duces.

 

Let us also have on this day a thought for Tibullus, who followed him into the grave (or rather to the Elysian Fields) at about the same time. Do you believe in coincidences?
