The aim of the paper is to analyze some passages in the text of Tito Livio about contacts between Romans and Celts: the time and the way in which Romans looked at this new, awful enemy.

Abstract

The aim of the paper is to analyze some passages in the text of Tito Livio about contacts between Romans and Celts: the time and the way in which Romans looked at this new, awful enemy. In this context, Romans were disconcerted by the strength and the way of struggle, never seen before and, for this reason, they attempted to highlight the most famous episodes of history even as supernatural events. Another objective is to connect typically Celtic materials, such as weapons and torques, and the contexts of pre-Roman Veneto, in which these objects know a peculiar distribution as well. The last aim is to link also some more abstract elements, about the ideas and mythology for Celtic warriors and venetic ancient tales.
