Virgil reading Aeneid, Book VI, to Augustus and Octavia, by Tailasson

Wikisource:Aeneid/Book VI

Characters in this book need to be noted separately since they do not appear as active characters, but are shown to Aeneas in a vision in the underworld, and are mainly either:

  • historical or mythical figures from Aeneas's future (ie from the Roman past or present of Virgil's time)
  • dead victims of the Trojan Wars
  • those damned to the Greek equivalent of hell, or raised to Elysium
