Composers and their stage works 

Caecilius [Statius]

Roman comic dramatist (ca. 219-168 B.C.)

Forty titles are known, sixteen of which correspond to known Greek titles of Menander, but Caecilius's fidelity to the texts of Greek New Comedy is a matter of debate. Only fragments of his work survive.
