An analysis of several passages from the III and the VI book of the Punica of Silius Italicus, with
particular reference to the visit to the temple of Gades by Hannibal (Sil. Pun. III 1 ff.), to the report of Bostar
back from consultation of Ammon’s oracle (Sil. Pun. III 650 ff.), and to the ecphrastic insert with high
ideological impact that closes the first hexad (Sil. Pun. VI 653 ff.), shows how the Virgilian-Lucanian
texture of the book is geared to demonstrate the subjectivity and bias, as well as the inanity of Hannibal’s
claim to see in himself a new Hercules.
