Note regarding Atellane Plays:|
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.
