Reading at Random in Classical Literature

Plautus, Menaechmi 72-73

With dry humour Plautus the scene for the rest of the play.

haec urbs Epidamnus est, dum haec agitur fabula:
quando alia agetur, aliud fiet oppidum.

This city is Epidamnus – for as long as we put on this play; when we put on another play it will become another town.
