Secondly because of the impression that is created of similarity in human circumstance over time. On each level the exemplum goes beyond the sympotic situation it exemplifies, but is adapted to fall in line at least superficially with the symposium. 'hRudd (note 4 above) 385 associates the "sinister overtones" of manere here with omnes uncr manet nox (C. 1.28.15). 23Schwartz (note 20 above) makes no mention of Chiron's prophetic powers, and Pindar's N. 3.43-49 and 56-63, which possibly reflects the Hesiodic tradition (Frugmentu Hesiodea Merkelbach-West frags. vice (7-8).

Canidia cannot be less amenable to prayer than the person who stands for the type, therefore if even Achilles gave in to prayer, a fortiori so should she. In the frame, cares generated by the civil wars underlie the anxiety about mortality. Furthermore, the context of Chiron's song is not the symposium but the instruction of Achilles.

From line 361 their song passes directly from the fight with the rivers ofIliad 21 to the sacrifice of Polyxena at Achilles' tomb, which is not Iliadic at all, omitting what we would expect-Achilles' greatest feat, the slaying of Hector of Iliad 22. While Achilles at Troy is offered as a comparandum to the poet and his drinking companion, we find that a scene we know from epic has been adapted to the sympo- sium. }, https://doi.org/10.1017/S1750270515000020.

This generic realignment cre- ates a strong link between the myth and the frame; one situation mirrors the other.3y, The last two lines and the adaptation of Achilles' singing bring us back to the symposium of the larger poem. Laudabunt alii claram Rhodon aut Mytilenen aut … "I2 But this storm has a further, more universal significance expressed by the play of the elements: air (caelum and Aquilone), water (imbres and mare), and land (silvae).The storm's universality points beyond the poet's particular mood first to the topic of mortality, which is made explicit by senectus (5),by the reference to the particular year of the poet's birth (6),and later by the exemplum of Achilles, and secondly to a related topic that is implied by the conventional associations of storm imagery and by the general con- text of the Epodes as a whole: the political concerns rising from the civil wars and the triumph of Octavian.13. But this adaptation in turn only goes so far. The similar focus on inevitable death in the epode-instead of presenting Achilles with a choice of either fame or long life-fits the immediate purpose of the poem by bringing mortality to the fore.

Where the symposium changes the appearance of didactic and epic, these genres in turn affect the symposium. Put this way, Troy sounds like death. After this broad span of past and future, nunc brings us back to the present. Cyllenea (9), also geographic, adds a distinctly Greek element both formally with the spondaic line and semantically with the reference to Arcadia and to Mercury.I8 Since Cyllenea modifies the lyre, it alerts us to the Greek quality of the song to be sung (Chiron's), and of the song being sung (Horace's). The poet's reply, which com-prises the whole of the short poem, is a vilification of her hideously decayed body. Horace was the bartender at The Drunken Clam. In place of consolation, the poet rather causes an~iety.~. The quality of inexorabilis is what motivates his use as an exemplum in Epode 17; it is pre- cisely because he is the type of person who cannot be persuaded by prayer that pointing out his yielding to Telephus and to Priam is effective. The disparity between the superficial congruence of the exemplum to its dramatic frame and the actual radical difference between the parts demands continual reinterpretation on the part of the reader. 37Compare Troy's function as the link between the death of Protesilaus and of Catullus' brother in Catullus 68; see, e.g., D. 0.Ross. With nunc (8) we come to the moment at hand, and since Horace already mentioned the wine above, he now includes the other trappings of symposium: perfume and music. tr ret!ehet (16).3"he lengthy metonymies for Troy, filling two entire lines (13-14), and the two local adverbs, unde (15) and illic (17), each beginning its line, emphasize the notion of place, and the difficulty of escape.
