The Irish literary legacy, as well as the Roman one, belongs to the one of the oldest legacies
in Europe. Among numerous Irish texts preserved until today, the most interesting seems to be
Imtheahta Aeniasa, Togail Troi, Merugud Uilix, Cath Catharda and Togail na Tebe. These works
were the Irish versions of Eneida, De Excidio Troiae Historia, Bellum Civilum by Lukanus and
Statius by Thebaid. Slight differences which can be noticed in Irish texts result from the fact that the
texts were written in prose and the specificy of their language. In general, some like Cath Catharda
were very precise copy of Roman text but others seems very original.
