No Images available at present.

An Athenian playwright (about 344-391 BC). He was the leading writer of plays of the New Comedy, which was a comedy of manners and everyday situations, as opposed to the Old Comedy of Aristophanes, which parodied contemporary events and problems through invented or `real' myth figures. His plays were highly influential in Rome, especially on the playwrights Plautus and Terence.
