The paper studies the possible relationship between Ovid's difficult political situation and the composition of verses 797-812 of the sixth book of the Fasti. Particularly it explains the possible effect of a well-structured praise for Marcia, daughter of Lucius Marcius Filippus (cos. 38 B.C.), in different periods: right before the exile, when Ovid composed the Fasti and his powerful protectors were already dead; between 8 and 14 A.D., when the poet was in exile; after 14 A.D., when Augustus died and Ovid didn't modify these verses. Marcia's personal relationships justify the celebration that Ovid dedicates to her.
