Abstract
In this paper the characterisation and portrayal of northern europeans in Roman late Republican and Imperial literature is examined. It looks specifically at the employment by Roman authors of animal comparisons and analogies as part of this characterisation and explores the reasons for which they are used, including the choice of vocabulary and imagery. This also involves a broader examination of the attitude of Classical authors towards wild animals and of the historical context of Rome's relations with its northern neighbours, as well as a survey of some of the past scholarship relevant to this topic.
