A new analysis of the poetic relationship between Virgil and Gallus, stemming from the observation of close ideological and formal affinities between the Virgilian poems dedicated to Gallus, and from the discovery of some lines of Gallus at Qasr Ibrim. A close examination of the two eclogues (6 and 10) in which Gallus appears explicitly--along with other Virgilian texts relating to Gallus--reveals Virgil's ongoing response to Gallus, and the evolution of that response from a literary discussion to a philosophical one.
