This workshop sets out to explore ways in which Greek narrative responds to Latin literature and culture at large. By studying cases of Latin interactions within ancient Greek narrative under the Principate, the conference seeks not only to improve our understanding of Greek-Latin overlaps in general, but also to find new ways of conceptualising this corpus in particular, by 1.discussing new methodological tools concerning reception; 2. situate Greek works in their intellectual, bilingual and multicultural environment; 3.account for the conspicuous absences of Rome from certain Greek productions under the Principate and investigate the notion of cultural identity.
