L’arrivée de Caton le Jeune à Antioche dans les récits de Plutarque et de Julien. Des discours, une pratique et des représentations

Abstract : Cato the Younger’s arrival in Antioch, during a trip in the Eastern Mediterranean, was reported by both Plutarch and Julian. Cato would have mistaken about honors he thought being destined for him. In analysing in minute detail these two authors’ texts, but also the transmission of the anecdote, my purpose in writing the present paper is to underline the complexity of interactions between discourses, several of which contribute to make Cato a model, a Greek cultural practice (the apantesis), and Cato’s, his biographers’, and Julian’s representations, as well as their readers’ ones.
