Atiliuslocked

  • Peter G. M. Brown

Extract

Author of fabulae palliatae, perhaps earlier than *Caecilius Statius (one title and nineteen words survive); noted for his harsh style, but praised by *Varro for stirring the emotions. Probably identical with the Atilius who translated *Sophocles' Electra (badly, according to Cicero Fin. 1. 5; an extract was chanted at Caesar's funeral), perhaps not with L. Atilius of Praeneste, named in the Terentian *didascaliae as a director of (probably revivals of) Terence's plays.
