Terence: Phormio

Edited by Robert Maltby

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Classical Texts

Terence's Phormio , based on a Greek original by Apollodorus of Carystus, was produced towards the end of his short dramatic career in 161 BC. With its lively action, based on the traditional elements of love, deception and mistaken identity, the play provides an ideal introduction to the genre of New Comedy.
