Roman comedy, fifth century A.D. ?

This page mentions in passing that one Roman comedy survives from the fifth century A.D. Do any of you happen to know about this play, or who the author might be?

The only surviving ancient Roman plays are the 21 comedies (one only in fragments) by Plautus listed by Varro as authentic, six comedies by Terence, ten tragedies by Seneca in the first century CE, and one comedy from the fifth century CE.
