CATULLUS 97: AEMILIUS IS A REAL STINKER

M. Lambert

Abstract


Catullus 97 has received scant attention from scholars. Harrauer's bibliography lists
scattered references to the poem in a few general works, but no article on the poem itself
(1979:102, 169); during the eleven year period 1979-1990, L'Annee Philologique lists one
paper (to which I shall refer below). Commentaries are generally dismissive (e.g. Merrill
1900:211 "An exceedingly coarse epigram on a certain Aemilius, of whom nothing further
is known") or vague (e.g. Quinn 1970:434 "A savage, if genially exuberant, attack on an
unknown Don Juan"): Fordyce omits the poem altogether, believing that there were a "few
poems which do not lend themselves to comment in English" (1961:preface).
