Note regarding Atellan farce:|
These were "the old national drama immediately connected with the festive worship of the people in which it took its rise and which therefore retained a respectability which could be conceded to the performances of foreign histriones. Being free from all contact with the professional actor, the young Roman could appear in the Atellan play without any forfeiture of his social position." -- Donaldson, Varronianus, p. 158.
