This chapter builds on the author’s earlier article Augusto nella visione astrologica di Manilio ed il problema della cronologia degli Astronomicon libri (Annali della Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia dell’Università di Napoli 9, 1960-1, pp. 5-66), which argues that Manilius’ Astronomica, dedicated to Augustus, was composed in the last five years of the emperor’s life (AD 9-14). It discusses a passage from Claudian’s In Rufinum (1.363-6), which shows how Claudian is indebted to certain lines in Astronomica 4 (542-6 and 547 ff.), where Manilius alludes to Augustus as being emperor.
