Nossis’ auto-epitaph is one of the most important texts in Nossis’ corpus, and yet one of the most controversial. This paper offers a careful analysis of the text and focuses on the programmatic reuse of epigraphic models and structures, which leads here to a complete subversion of the epitymbion schema. In addition, a thorough analysis is offered for the corrupted passages in the last couplet.
