Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The paper analyzes the long section dedicated by Silio Italico to the figure of Regolo in Pun. 6, 117-551, investigating the characterization of the character fought between the specter of torture and unjust death and the possibility of being saved, but coming less to the oath made to his enemies. The result is the emphasis on the concept of "fides", typically Roman, in contrast with the disloyalty topically attributed to the Carthaginian enemy, and the exaltation of the character of Regulus, the bearer of Roman values not only with regard to fidelity to the given word, but also in what concerns the domain of passions and impulses.
