    Professor Costas Panayotakis

Costas Panayotakis is Professor of Latin at the University of Glasgow. His research is on the Latin novel, especially Petronius’ Satyrica, and on Roman drama, in particular the popular low forms of Roman theatrical entertainment (mime and Atellane comedy), the scripts of which have come down to us only in fragments. Author of Theatrum Arbitri: Theatrical Elements in the Satyrica of Petronius (Leiden, 1995), Decimus Laberius: The Fragments (Cambridge, 2010), and of annotated translations (into Modern Greek) of three plays of Plautus and Terence, he is currently preparing new critical editions (with facing translation and commentary) of the fragments of Atellane comedy, the moral maxims associated with the mimographer Publilius, and Petronius’ ‘Dinner at Trimalchio’s’.
