The classical Athenian polymath Xenophon is an unappreciated source for certain passages of Virgil's Aeneid. Close consideration of the parallels between texts from Xenophon's Kynegeticus and Oeconomicus and scenes from Aeneid 1 in particular will reveal an intricate web of intertextual allusions and demonstrate that Xenophon is a key literary antecedent for the decisions of the epic poet both to highlight the deer-hunting prowess of his hero and to accord a prominent place to bees and apian lore in his portrait of Elissa's nascent Carthage.
