Title: Alliteration in the hexameter books of Lucilius
Author: Miller, Edith
Date: 1913
Publisher: University of Missouri
Abstract: It is very evident (1) that Lucilius used the device of alliteration, (2) that he used it very freely, and (3) that he must have used it purposely. In general, his alliteration means nothing, though occasionally it does mean something. Lucilius must have used the device simply to tickle the people's ears, and because he had the habit.
