Turpi'lius, Sextus

a Roman dramatist whose productions belonged to the department of Comoedia Palliata..


Comoedia Palliata.

The titles of thirteen or fourteen (Acta, Boethuntes, Canephorus, Demetrius, Demiurgus, Epiclerus, Hetaera, Lemnii, Leucadiu Lindia, Paratcrusa, Philopator, Thrasyleon, Veliterna (?) have been preserved, together with a few fragments. Of the above, the Thrasyleon appears to have been taken from Menander, the Demetrius and the Leucadia from Alexis. According to Hieronymus, in the Eusebian Chronicle, Turpilius died, when very old, at Sinuessa in B. C. 101. He stands seventh in the scale of Volcatius Sedigitus. [SEDIGITUS.]


The fragments will be found collected in the Poetarum Latii Scenicorum Fragmenta of Bothe, vol. ii. p. 76. 8vo. Lips. 1834.
