Who was brought to Rome from Carthage as a slave but
impressed his master so much that not only was he emancipated, but also
given a classic Roman education and became a celebrated playwright?
- Born in Carthage circa 190 B.C., Publius Terentius Afer aka Terence,
may have started off as a slave but quickly became the darling of the
aristocracy. He is widely recognized as the creator of the comedy of
manners. Like Plautus, he too adapted Greek plays, especially the plays
of Menander. His works have had a profound effect upon later writers.
