Description In her text the author presents Quintus Ennius as an experimenting writer with many talents. She leaves aside his greatest and best known texts and focuses at opera minora, especially Ennius’s collection known as Saturae. The author summarises actual findings about this work and on their basis speculates if it is possible to think about its inclusion into the genre of satire. The paper involves also several fragments of this piece, which have been preserved to our times.
