Description This paper enquires into the multifaceted nature of Ovid’s reception in the Virgilian centos of late antiquity. The focus is on three mythological epyllia (i.e. Narcissus, Progne et Philomela, Europa: Anth. Lat. 9, 13, 14 R), inspired by Ovid in terms of content as well as narrative technique. It is shown that the cyclic composition of these texts was influenced by one of the most significant generative mechanisms of Ovid’s narrative in the Metamorphoses.
