Sulpicius Apollinaris / Carthaginiensis: una identità problematica
The epigram handed down in Voss Lat. 111 (X century) with the hexastica to Aeneid, ascribed to one Sulpicius Carthaginiensis (SC) and edited in Anthologia latina - 653 Riese, is (as a matter of fact) a late re-writing of an epigram (also ascribed to the same author) included in Donatus's Vita Verigilii. The author could be a pseudo-SC, distinct from SC. Moreover, the traditional identification of SC with the grammarian of II century Sulpicius Apollinaris (SA), carried out considering the analogies between hexastica to Aeneiden and periochae to Terentius's commedies written by SA, is improbable because pseuso-SC seems to have added the hexastica to epigram ignoring SA. On the contrary is more probable to identify SC with Sulpicius mentioned by Scholia Veronensia.
