The paper deals with Ps. Quint. decl. min. 253; in the text, concerning one of the best-known themes of the declamatory literature, a tyrannicide, after killing a tyrant, asks the community for approval of a rogatio in order to be sent to the tyrant of the nearby city. The declamation focuses on a hero willing to put the salvation of the community before his own, a theme certainly usual in Latin thought, but which traces new interpretative ways in the declamatory culture.
