Abstract

A Greek epigram by Andrea Dazzi on the death of Pope Julius II looks like a satire in the fashion of Lucian, Aristophanes, and the Greek Anthology: the wording of this text brings to mind not only Pontano’s Charon and, more specifically, some popular polemical texts against Julius, but also Erasmus of Rotterdam’s dialogue Iulius exclusus e coelis, with which it shares some startling similarities.*.
