Robinson Ellis is best known for his discovery of the Codex Oxoniensis, an early manuscript of Catullus, and his work on Latin poetry. In this piece he addresses the mini-epic Ciris, a mythological narrative of the legend of Scylla and Nisus often attributed to Virgil and the topic of much scholarly debate over origin, dating, and quality. The paper reviews the nature of the debate in a concise format and is a useful companion to any complete study of Virgil.
