Roman Comedy On Stage

Feb. 14, 2013            

 BLOOMINGTON, Ill.— Illinois Wesleyan University’s Greek and Roman Studies is set to host “Roman music in Roman comedy” on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 4 p.m. in the Beckman Auditorium of The Ames Library (1 Ames Plaza, Bloomington).

The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

The program is part of the Ides Lecture and Performance Series. Guest speaker will be Timothy Moore, John and Penelope Biggs distinguished professor of classics from Washington University, St. Louis. 

For additional information, contact Director of Greek and Roman Studies Nancy Sultan at or call (309) 556-3173.

Note: Dedicated to the Roman god, Jupiter, the Ides fell on the day of the full moon in the Roman calendar. Because a full moon comes halfway through each lunation, its day was called “Idus” in Latin, meaning, “divide.” Greek and Roman Studies celebrates the Ides each month during the academic year with a guest speaker or performance.
