The research interprets the textual references of 'Pharsalia' based on the presupposition that the epic aims to emulate and reinterpret (in an anti-Virgilian and anti-Ovidian way) Virgil's 'Aeneid' (sometimes even 'Georgics' and his eclogues) and Ovid (especially 'Metamorphoses'). Allusions can be revealed on higher structural and lexical levels of the poem. The allusions of the first section can draw attention to 'Aeneid's' prologue by being placed in the book of 'Pharsalia' of the same number. The prologues themselves can also refer to other texts and raise the question whether the poet wanted to refer to only one of the prologues or both, and if yes, what kind of correspondence of the two prologues he perceived. The paper reveals and comments the allusions of Virgil in 'Pharsalia' 9, 1 - 108, with other supposed archetypes involved in the survey.
