abstract

The essay explains the intertextual connection of a satiric epigram of Magnus Felix Ennodius, carm. 2.97 H. = 217 V. De anu quadam with the description of the miraculous pregnancy of Sara, Isaac’s mother, in Sedulius’ Carmen Paschale. Furthermore, the article provides an Italian translation of the poem to explain the allusion to the menopause of the old woman at l. 3.
