[Autom. eng. transl.] The article traces the medieval sources that speak of Seneca's death up until the beginning of the fourteenth century. Not having access to Tacitus's extensive story, these texts insist on the relationship of discipleship between Seneca and Nerone and identify in it the ultimate cause of the emperor's decision to send his preceptor to death. The article makes it clear what are the known elements of Seneca's death before the discovery of Tacitus and the cultural dynamics put in place to reconstruct the story, arriving at some curious agnitions.
