Behind the playfulness and the self-irony, Ennod. carm. II 67 = 188 V. is a complex metaliterary epigram, in which the future bishop of Pavia represents himself as writing poems in the backyard of his villa during grape harvesting. A detailed commentary and an analysis of the ideological elements scattered in the five elegiac couplets show that the text is a self-portrait of Ennodius in the attitude of a heathen poet, and that it was perhaps intended as a closure poem for his own collection of secular poetry .
