Terence came to Rome from North Africa as a slave in the household of a senator who freed him. His six plays (all of them extant), first performed in the 160s B.C. in Rome, were all based on New Comedy models--like other Roman comedies of the time. In contrast to the exuberance and buffoonery of Plautus, Terence gives us realistic scenes and witty, refined Latin.
