Abstract

The versions in the Historia Augusta differ from one another, especially in regards to the general opinion of Settimia Zenobia Augusta: one version portrays her in a positive manner, and another one describes her in a negative way. In addition to the methods of inventio and fiction of the author of the Historia Augusta and the historiographical meanings linked to them, the reference to a detail in Zenobia’s apparel – a shell – is worthy of note. As unicum in the Historia Augusta, the object might conceal symbols that go beyond the immediate definition which is apparently purely ornamental.
