Lu'scius, Lavi'nius

a Latin comic poet, the contemporary and rival of Terence, who mentions him several times in the prologues to his plays. (Ter. Eunuch. prol. 7, Heautontim. prol. 30, Phorm. prol. 4.) The name of only one of his plays is known, the plan of which is given by Donatus (ad Ter. Eunuch. l.c.) Vulcatius Sedigitus assigned to Luscius the ninth place in the list of comic poets. (Gel. 15.24.)
