Sulpicia - The Portal For Dreams And Poems

Sulpicia – The Portal For Dreams And Poems by Daniel Arrhakis (2022)

Sulpicia was the author, in the first century BCE, of six short elegiac surviving poems (some 40 lines in all) written in Latin which were published as part of the corpus of Albius Tibullus’s poetry (poems 3.13-18). She is one of the few female poets of ancient Rome whose work survives.

Sulpicia lived in the reign of Augustus and was born around 40 BCE. She was the daughter of Servius Sulpicius Rufus and probably his wife Valeria; her uncle the brother of Valeria, Marcus Valerius Messalla Corvinus, served as the commander for Augustus.
