ItemAgryppa, Marcellus i pierścień Augusta. Kilka uwag na temat fragmentu Historii rzymskiej Kasjusza Diona (53, 30, 1–2)(Wydawnictwo Poznańskiego Towarzystwa Przyjaciół Nauk, 2013-06-30) Sawiński, PawełIn the article I make an interpretation of one of the fragments of The Roman History by Cassius Dio, refering to Augustus` illness in 23. I am trying to answer a question how the fact of handing over a personal ring to Agrippa by Augustus should be understood and, more than that, whether we can perceive Marcellus, emperor`s nephew and son-in-law as his planned successor. I am also touching the problem of the alleged rivalry between Agrippa and Marcellus, which was mentioned by ancient authors. ItemEvil Goddesses, Flawed Heroes. Divine Wrath and Human Error in Seneca’s Hercules furens and Phaedra.(Wydawnictwo Poznańskiego Towarzystwa Przyjaciół Nauk, 2013-06-30) Pypłacz, JoannaThe present article discusses the relationship between deities and human beings in Seneca’s tragedies. Only in two of them – Hercules furens and Phaedra – do gods significantly influence the plot.

ItemWizerunek Seneki w tragedii Oktawia i w Rocznikach Tacyta(Wydawnictwo Poznańskiego Towarzystwa Przyjaciół Nauk, 2013-06-30) Pigoń, JakubThe paper examines the representation of Seneca in two literary works of the late 1st and early 2nd cent. AD, the anonymous tragedy Octavia and the Annals by Tacitus. In the Octavia Seneca appears as the emperor Nero’s upright but unhappy teacher trying in vain to inculcate salutary advice to his master. There is no question of his being responsible for the crimes of Nero; the picture of him drawn in the play is wholly favourable. The portrayal of Seneca in Tacitus’ Annals is more complex and nuanced, and only seldom the historian gives his own views about Nero’s advisor. However, it would be wrong to suppose that Seneca is harshly criticised by Tacitus.

I have offered also a possible interpretation of the analysed passages. ItemOn the question of knowledge and blindness in Sophocles’ Oedipus Tyrannus.(Wydawnictwo Poznańskiego Towarzystwa Przyjaciół Nauk, 2013-06-30) Grelka, MaciejThe article presents comments on the question of knowledge and blindness in Sophocles’ Oedypus Tyrannus. The author suggests that part of the lexical data may support the hypothesis of Parmenidean inspiration of the tragedy. He claims that it is reasonable when Oedipus charges Teiresias and Creon of conspiracy. He also suggests that Oedipus’ loss of eyes on one hand and the king’s other experiences on the other move him away from the category of human beings to the borderland between the worlds of the mortals, the dead and the world of divinity. The author of the article also claims that among various interpretations of the tragedy, the knowledgeoriented one seems to find the most support in lexical data.
