Abstract

The contribution elaborates on the peculiarity of Perioch. 49,21-27 concerning Andriscus, the so-called Pseudo-Philippus. Scholarly interpretations on the passage will be resumed, as mainly polarizing on opposing views of its content. Subsequently, on a philological level, a comparative analysis of the text in the light of Livy’s extant books and of external parallels will show that the vocabulary employed is Livian to a substantial extent. Furthermore, on a narrative level, Jal’s en passant concession («tout au plus» comm. ad loc.) about the possible interest of Livy’s epitomiser (and of his readers) in the histoires merveilleuses opens the way to as thorough an investigation as possible into literary parallels – Greek and Latin – chronologically close to the Periochae, that invite to reassess the outstanding problem of the peculiarity.
