Triclinium, literally meaning, "room with three couches," refers to the dining room in a Roman home.[1] Multiple triclinia belonging to various characters are featured throughout the books.

Caeclilius' Triclinium Edit

Caecilius's triclinium is first prominently displayed in Stage 2, Caecilius invites a merchant with whom he intends to do business to his house for a dinner. Caecilius is initially worried about his reputation when Grumio begins audibly singing in the kitchen nearby, but these fears are quelled when he tastes the dish that Grumio has prepared. A slave girl enters and sings to the party, who are soon asleep because it is implied that they drank "multum vinum," that night. Grumio then enters the kitchen, sees the slave girl, and they both eat the party's food.[2]
