Abstract

Analysis and comparison of the way Cicero and Philodemus refer to Epicurus‘ theological works. Whereas Philodemus carefully selects and analyses passages crucial to his argument, Cicero quotes exclusively, but frequently the widely known rata sententia 1. Since these quotations are only loosely connected to the context, they seem to serve a different purpose.
