The Epitome (commonly cited as Ilias latina or Homerus latinus) formerly attributed to the imaginary Pindarus Thebanus, has recently been ascribed to Silius Italicus. The De bello troiano (col. 444-499) ascribed in this and in the earlier editions of Dares Phrygius to Cornelius Nepos, is a poem by Joseph of Exeter (Josephus Iscanus) based on the Historia de excidio Troiae of "Dares Phrygius." cf. Wm. Camden, Britannia, 1590, p. 133-134, quoted by S. Dresenius in the preface to his edition of the poem, Frankfurt, 1620 (reprinted in Valpy's Delphine edition, London, 1825)
