La spada di Tuberone. Una citazione della pro Ligario nell’Institutio oratoria di Quintiliano


Cicero's Pro Ligario is frequently mentioned in Quintilian’s Institutio Oratoria. The author is very aware of the importance of the text for the social and historical context in which it was pronounced and for the ambiguous presence of Caesar. Among these quotations stands out in the treaty the evocation of the sword of Tubero (Cic. Lig. 9) in five different contexts that confirm the Quintilian’s remarkable interest for this text.
