Julius Solinus’ Collectanea rerum memorabilium was held in a really high esteem during all
the Middle Ages, higher than almost any other Classical Latin prose work. A good example of
Solinus’ auctoritas may be found in Fazio degli Uberti’s Dittamondo, an allegorical poem written
in imitation of Dante’s Divina Commedia. Fazio degli Uberti chooses Solinus as the incarnation of
Roman knowledge and his role in the poem runs parallel to the role played by Vergil in Dante’s
Commedia. This paper offers a description of Solinus’ role in Fazio’s Dittamondo and emphasizes
the significance of Solinus as a counterpart of Dante’s Vergil.
