Terence (ca.190-159 B.C.), a North African slave freed by his Roman master, was the playwright of six plays and famed in his own day for his elegant and colloquial style of Latin. As such, his Latin was studied in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, but he was best known not through translations of his work, but through imitation which was quite rife with respect to plots, characters, and tone in the Renaissance comedies of Italy, France, and England."Folio Variorum" edition of Terence, so called because it contains virtually all of the valuable treatises upon the author up to the date of publication. Wing T 744 ESTC r38338. Schweiger II, 1066.
