This article hypothesizes an intertextual relationship between the literary transfiguration of Occitan troubadour Bertran de Born in Inferno 28 and a fragment of Latin poetry preserved by late antique scholars (and disputedly attributed to Roman poet Ennius). The evidence presented in support of this hypothesis include lexical, prosodical, and rhetorical elements. The hypothesis is also examined with reference to the material and textual transmission of the fragment.
