Abstract: This paper analyzes in detail the priamel contained in the Horace's Carmina 1.1, and especially focuses on the word vates. The function of the priamel must be reconsidered in order to understand the first poem of Carmina, because the priamel is at the heart of the poem but its foils and its climax have been argued. The foils are constructed as nine types of pleasures and ways of life, which have the function of a vocation catalogue, and the climax is the author's desire to be a lyric poet. The analysis reveals that the foils have a closer relationship with each other. They are not simply arranged in random order nor are they neutral compared to the climax, but present various viewpoints and values. The intricate connection of the foils highlights the nature of the climax – the way of life of a lyric poet called the lyricus vates. The vates is a Roman poet who has new insights into the world of men and gods. The first song, as a proem of Carmina, not only shows of a traditional lyric poet's way of life, but also defines the lyricus vates as a Roman lyric poet.
