The paper offers a reading of Pacuvius’ fragments 211.143-5 and 18.139 R.3 from the tragedy named Dulorestes. Both texts seem to come from a scene, in which Orestes and Electra decide definitely to commit matricide. The main theme of the fragments is the nature of relationship and feelings between parents and children. A deep analysis of the verses and their possible Greek models seems to provide new evidence of how the poet practiced the well-known technique of Romanisierung in this context.
