dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the allusive roles of Diomedes as he is used in the Aeneid and Metamorphoses. Chapter 1 is a general introduction to how Diomedes was used in Greek literature. Chapter 2 argues that Virgil’s Aeneid uses Diomedes to create its own epic past that does not always agree with the ‘Homeric’ past that is the Iliad. Chapter 3 argues that Ovid ‘corrects’ Virgil’s Diomedes by rewriting the epic past of the Aeneid to agree more with the Iliad. Chapter 4 is a general conclusion.
