      Cayo Salustio Crispo. "Historiae", último y más importante trabajo , del cual, sólo conservamos algunos fragmentos. Su estilo y su lenguaje se caracterizan por la concisión y por el uso intencionado de arcaísmos.

    • Greta Vacchiano

      Petronius Arbiter viene descritto da Tacito come efficiente uomo di potere. La sua raffinatezza e gusto estetico lo avvicinarono a Nerone. Si suicidò nel 66 in modo paradossale.

      "Tito Maccio Plauto ( Sarsina, actual Italia, 251 a.C.-Roma, 184 a.C.) fue un comediografo latino . Sus comedias comenzaron a representarse en Roma a partir del 210 a. C., en medio de un gran éxito de público, hecho que se tradujo, tras su muerte, en una abundante circulación de obras. Son más de 130 las comedias atribuidas a Plauto. Plauto se dedicó exclusivamente a la comedia, tomando como modelo la nueva comedia griega." Biografia tomada de La verdad se esconde en palabras.
