The article is dealing with ghost-stories in the history-writing of early imperial Roman literature (Tabelle 1). Most of the examined ghost-scenes can be identified as unlucky warning prodigia indicating dangerous political conflict in the roman society (before all warning signs to avoid or to revenge nefas-activity). Their most important literary antecendents - as topoi of “tragic” history-writing - can be found in homeric and augustan poems, and in classical greek and roman tragedies (Tabelle 2).
