Abstract

The article deals with the reconstruction of the intertextual obscene nominative units in Martial’s epigrams. The author identifies and classifies the intertextual nominative units and structures, actualizing sexual motives in the poet’s texts, the source of which is the Roman literary and cultural tradition, in particular the work of Gaius Valerius Catullus, Carmina Priapeia, folk festivals as well as other ancient epigrams.
