Pseudolus: or, The Cheat

Titus Maccius PLAUTUS (254 BCE - 184 BCE), translated by Henry Thomas RILEY (1816 - 1878)

About two dozen comedies of the Roman playwright Plautus have survived the years, with many of them ending up rewritten and recast by other playwrights such as Moliere. This one, Pseudolus, was part of the source for A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. - Summary by ToddHW
