The Biography of Senex

I may be known as Senex, but I was born Aruns Satre. (My proper name indicates that I am the younger born son in the Satre family.) I am an Etruscan freedman who took the Caecilius family name of my former master. How I came to be a slave is a long story and a dull one, so I will make it brief.
