In the ancient inventory of technical terms for rhetorical effects and devices, was there a term corresponding specifically to personification, in the sense of "the attribution of a personal nature or human characteristics to something nonhuman, or the representation of an abstract quality in human form"?
The closest thing I can find is prosopopoiea, which is somewhat different: it refers to speaking through the assumed character of someone else, and though that "someone else" can be a non-human or abstract entity (as in Cicero's First Catilinarian, where he speaks in the voice of the Roman Republic), it doesn't have to be. Also, personification does not necessarily involve speaking for the personified entity.
Personificatio is not in L&S nor PHI, and anyway I would expect that if a term existed it would be Greek, as most such terms are. Was there such a term?
