Appendix Vergiliana

The Appendix Vergiliana is a collection of writings traditionally ascribed as juvenilia of Virgil, although there are general doubts as to their authorship. However, because the authors who were influenced by Virgil thought they were authentic, they are still studied today to trace their influence, regardless of who wrote them.
