The extant literature of ancient Rome has a representation problem. How can we understand the experiences of women, non-citizens, freedpersons, and the enslaved when most of our sources are written by elite, citizen men? Using epistemic theory, we can crack open the gaps and explore the ventriloquized lives of the Other in comedy.
