About the Author

Titus Maccius Plautus (c. 154 BC - 184 BC) (called Plautus), was a Roman playwright of the Old Latin period. He wrote in Latin, using Greek models adapted for Roman audiences. His works are the earliest surviving examples of Latin literature. While little is known of his life, he was born in Sarsina in central Italy around 254 BC. He worked as a carpenter or grip at the theater before becoming an actor and playwright around 205, relatively late in his life.
