Abstract

Though noteworthy for the figurative use of obscene language, for the ‘rhetoric’ of obscenity, and, above all, for its surely corrupt text, Catull. 80 is perhaps one of the most neglected poems in the liber, within the likewise neglected Gellius cycle. This paper, through the analysis of the textual tradition and the history of conjectures (in particular, an unpublished note by Giovanni Pascoli), seeks to mend the problematic final couplet and to restore a coherent rhetorical balance to the ‘pointed’ end of the poem.
