There has been intense debate over the musical culture of Rome in the Republic, especially in the period before 240 BCE, when translations of Attic drama into Latin appear to have put Roman literary productions on a new track. We shall discuss some major contributions to the debate, and I shall try to ensure that we keep to the forefront the important issue of the role of the Greek example in framing the issues: scholars ancient and modern use the Greek model in various ways, and it will be important to be as explicit as we can about what we are assuming to be the case in Greece when we make comparisons with the much less well documented Rome of the middle Republic.
