Térence (in Latin: Publius Terentius Afer), born in Carthage around 190 and died in Rome in 159 BC, was a Latin comedic poet, presumably of Berberine origin. Author of only six plays that have touched all of us, he is considered, with Plautus, one of the two great masters of the kind in Rome, and his work has had a deep influence on the European theatre, from antiquity to modern times. The version annotated by M.-Ant. de Muret was highly praised in the 16th century.
16th century editions of the great classical texts are becoming increasingly rare.
