In this play, Simo, a wealthy Athenian wants his son, Pamphilius, to marry one girl but Pamphilius has his sights set on another. Much of the conflict in this play revolves around schemes with Pamphilius's slave, Davos, and the rest of the characters in the story. New slaves were primarily acquired by wholesale dealers who followed the Roman armies. They could then use the money to buy a new young slave while the old slave, unable to work, would be forced to rely on charity to stay alive. A handmaid named either Philotis or Tutula came up with a plan to deceive the enemy: the ancillae would put on the apparel of the free women, spend one night in the enemy camp, and send a signal to the Romans about the most advantageous time to launch a counterattack. Delos in the eastern Mediterranean was made a free port in BC and became one of the main market venues for slaves. Online books Resources in your library Resources in other libraries.
