A Roman comic poet, the earliest representative of the fabula togata. (See Comoedia.) He flourished about B.C. 150. Owing to his skill in portraying character he was ranked next to Terence. Of his comedies we only possess fifteen titles and three fragments of a popular character, given in Ribbeck's collection (1872).
