Turpilius (died old, 103 bce, according to Jerome), author of fabulae palliatae. Thirteen titles and some 200 lines survive; the titles are all Greek (several from *Menander (1)), and there are no Roman allusions in the fragments, but in several other respects he is closer to *Plautus than *Terence.
