The main focus of this paper is to pinpoint and discuss some Platonic influences in Seneca’s Consolatio ad Helviam matrem. The aim is to highlight in this work, and in the comparison with other Senecan writings, the terms in which the agreement between Platonism and Stoicism is carried out. By looking at the cultural Roman milieu, the paper, whose emphasis is philosophical as well as philological, analyses Seneca’s allegiance to Stoicism but also tries to find and stress the Platonic elements – which seem to be close to those demonstrated by some Middle Platonists – and the importance of these for the development of his thought and originality of his philosophy.
