Livius Andronicus

In classical history, Lucius Livius Andronicus was a Greek colonist who was captured by the Romans at Tarentum on the southern coast of Italy. He was made a slave to a Livian[?] noble. Later freed, he taught and produced for the uncultured Romans their first formal play in 240 BC. Only framents of his works survive.
