A little geology lesson as we novices understood it: Under extreme pressure from an ocean that once called this region home, the combination of hematite (iron), quartz and sandstone formed an incredibly dense layer at the bottom of the sea.

A thriving and diverse form of art which ranged from street performances, acrobatics, and nude dancing to the staging of the situational comedies of Plautus and the elaborately articulated tragedies by Seneca, the theater of Ancient Rome evolved over time. Roman theater and drama did not remain stagnant but went through a whole cycle of development which included three phases: Early Native Italian Drama (pre-240 BCE) including such things such as Atellan farces, phlyakes and the Fescennine verses, Literary Drama (240 BCE ca. 100 BCE) featuring the Roman adaptation of Greek plays and a period of Popular Renaissance (ca. 100 BCE 476 CE) where more traditional Roman entertainment such as circuses, spectacles and mime were popular.
It is oversimplified but not entirely inaccurate to say that there was a divide between those who preferred entertainment with lines that were read and those who preferred visual spectacles. The upper class (patricians), by and large, focused on the former and the lower class (plebeians) on the latter.
Romans were likely first introduced to public entertainment by the northern Etruscans. From 599400 BCE, Etruscans enjoyed shows that included dancing, athletic events, and singing. These Etruscan preferences were never outgrown, as seen in the circuses, horse racing, wrestling, boxing, and so forth that were popular in the later Roman period. Latin vocabulary of Etruscan origin confirms this theory. The Latin histrio is from the Etruscan ister (performer) and the Latin persona is from the Etruscan phersu (mask, masked dancer). Nevertheless, Latin has more words of Greek origin than of Etruscan origin, showing that Greek influences on Rome were stronger than any Etruscan influence. In the final analysis, however, it is impossible to determine how much the Etruscans influenced the Romans. Even classical historians from the first century BCE could not determine the earliest history of Roman drama with precision. Classical Latin authors such as Horace and Livy suggest that Roman drama originated at such things as country festivals, harvests, and weddings. They mention the Fescennine verses which were improvised performances by clowns that included obscenities, poetic meter, mocking, and more. It seems, however, that much of their information reflects an attempt to invent a history for Roman drama that parallels the history of Greek drama.
Archaeological data demonstrates the existence of hilarotragoedia (funny tragedy) or phlyax plays (gossip-plays, pl. phlyakes) during the early Republic period (500250 BCE). Comedy of Greek origin was appealing to Italian audiences as early as the fourth century BC.
In 120 BC, the Romans returned to Atellan farce. During this second phase of Atellan farce dominance, the dramatists Novius and Pomponius took center stage. Their popular works such as Sargeant Maccus and The Brothers Macci have not survived, but quotes from various plays are extant.
The Atellan farce waxed and waned in popularity after this period, fading about a generation after 120 BCE, until the Pax Romana, and then appearing later during the reigns of Domitian (8196 CE) and Hadrian (117138CE) before disappearing forever.
