In Dionysius of Halicarnassus’ Opuscula, the comparison between rhetoric and music is at the heart of the nature of rhetoric, analysed according to musical criteria. In the contribution, we study the music called up by Dionysius, the musical elements in language according to the author and finally the limits that Dionysius attributes to speeches’ musicality.
