The theatre of Plautus is a panorama of human characters that parade on stage showing their comic aspect. Euclio, the principal hero of Tsoukalas is a compulsive miser who later consisted an inspiration for Moliere's 'The Miser'. In the play we see all the elements, which characterize the language of the Roman comedy writer: clearly comic motives, a quick rhythm, rough jokes, immediacy, a complicated action, and continuously accelerated plot. Trough the accumulation of adventures and surprises, disguises, misunderstandings and recognitions, Plautus proved to be a master of theatrical making and his plays constitute a perfectly tuned up machine.
