Excerpt from The Captives and Trinummus of Plautus: With Introduction and Notes

Umbria, and his command of the Latin language indicates that he must have come to Rome early in his life. There is no evidence that he was a slave, nor, on the other hand, that he had the active rights of a Roman citizen. He is thus between Livius Andronicus and Terence, on one side, and Naevius and Ennius on the other. There is a brief account of his life in Aulus Gellius, III. 3. I4., in which it is stated that he made money in some employment about the theatre, that he lost it on a trading expedition, that he returned to Rome in poverty and earned his living by turn ing a handmill, and that while thus engaged he wrote three plays. This account contains some improbabilities, and though it is given on the authority of Varro, it must rest finally on oral tradition, since the Roman records of Plautus' time took no account of literature.
