Abstract

Cicero is the only classical writer mentioned in the CSEL edition of the works attributed to Priscillian. The quotation of orat. 1,4 is the only one to be accepted, while the de orat. 3,15,58 and senect. 16,58 ones have no relevance to our text. The CSEL index does not include a further quote, made by Ennius in the prologue of the Medea; this prologue was in Antiquity one of the most famous texts of Ennius and played the role of 'Standardbeispiel' in rhetoric textbooks. The quotations form Cicero in 'Liber ad Damasum' and Ennius in 'Tractatus Exodi', showing a different use of classical tradition, could give some further indication about the authorship of the priscillianist texts and keep the interest alive in researching the entire corpus of Wuerzburg.
