Abstract
The Psalms of Solomon (Pss. Sol.) is a pseudepigraphic work conveying a Jewish poetic response to Roman incursions in Palestine. Since 1847, when F.K. Movers first proposed that Pompey was the Gentile conqueror condemned throughout certain Pss. Sol., most scholars have assumed that all historical allusion throughout the corpus of Pss. Sol. referred to Pompey.
