Observations sur le vers saturnien

= Paper =
 
The present paper aims at examining the origins of the Latin saturnian verse within the tradition of Italic poetics as an inheritance of Indo-European poetics. Several archaic Latin and Sabellian inscriptions are analysed as metrical texts. We suggest that the Latin saturnian verse may have developped in a short period from the VIth to the IIIrd centuries B.C.
