This sauce is thickened with a paste of cooked rice and the resulting mixture is reminiscent of the mushy-pea pottage that is also served with meatballs. It is quite likely that such plain and relatively simple food was served outside the home at the better popina or taverns and also at the dining-rooms of collegia or trade guilds.
