Abstract. In Hor. carm. 1,33 many allusions to Tibullus’ poems can be detected; noticeable is the topos of the ‘chain of love’, which can be found also in Tib. 1,8: even the woman who rejects her lover has the same name in both poems, Pholoe. This offers further evidence to identify the addressee of Horace’s ode with the elegiac poet: moreover, the ode is not merely a consolatory one, but has full metapoetic dimension, showing how the same theme can be developed in a ‘classical’ style according to Horace’s basic ideal of modus.
