Sample text

Yet grounds exist for denying Terence’s popularity. The performance of his Hecyra was aborted in its first two attempts, and the inability to perform the entire play has been taken as evidence of his dramaturgic failure and his audiences’ disapproval. To explain this purported failure and disapproval, scholars point to ways in which Terence differs from Plautus, who apparently suffered no such setbacks. Since Plautus appears similar to other poets of the palliata, Terence thereby appears isolated from the traditions of Roman New Comedy.

An. 215–24 is an obvious candidate: here Davos changes from accompanied lines to unaccompanied iambic senarii to inform the audience that Pamphilus has got Glycerium pregnant, that they plan to bring up the baby when it is born, and that they are claiming that Glycerium is an Athenian citizen who was shipwrecked on Andros as a small child and brought up there. Davos remains in character by saying that they are mad to think of bringing up the baby and that he does not believe the story about the shipwreck, but these are the sort of details that could well have been included in an expository prologue.

1. At An. 770–1 Mysis rejects the accusation that the newly-born baby is supposititious with the words dis pol habeo gratiam / quom in pariundo aliquot adfuerunt liberae (“Well, thank heaven there were some free-born women present at its birth”), and Donatus comments: testimonia libera contra servum. et hoc proprium Terentii est, nam de Romano more hoc dixit (“Free-born evidence against a slave. And this is Terence’s own way of putting it, since she said this in accordance with Roman custom”). If Donatus thought that differences between Athens and Rome in the ability of either women or slaves to give evidence in court were relevant, his comment is besides the point, since in both cities it was possible to obtain evidence from women and slaves and present it to the court by one means or another.
