      The Roman poet P. Papinius Statius (ca. ) is the author of two epics (the "Thebaid" and the unfinished "Achilleid") and a large corpus of occasional verse ("Silvae"). This poetry, long seen as derivative or decadent, is increasingly appreciated for the daring and originality of its responses both to the Greek and Latin literary tradition and to the contemporary Roman world.

This book argues that the Thebaid reworks themes, scenes, and ideas from Virgil in order to show that the Aeneid's representation of monarchy is inadequate.

      Composed at the end of the first century CE, Statius' Thebaid recounts the civil war in Thebes between the two sons of Oedipus, Polynices and Eteocles, and the horrific events that take place on the battlefield. Its author, the Roman poet Statius, employed a wide variety of Greco-Roman sources in order to narrate the Argive expedition against Thebes and the fratricidal war. In the eighth book of Statius' Thebaid the Argives meet to appoint a successor to the dead seer Amphiaraus ( ff.). Their choice falls on Thiodamas son of Melampus (–9); he, however, is overwhelmed by the prospect, which he regards with a mixture of joy and apprehension (–5).
