"b samme" is the inscription given to a player named Sam by whoever annotated the plot of "Dead Man's Fortune" ("b" for "boy"). The tendency in theater history has been to consider the "b" to indicate a boy player. Greg, however, Greg sees a conflict between interpreting the "b" as "boy" given that the actor (Sam) appears to have been assigned to the part of Euphrodore. He considers that "Euphrodore" might be a female character, though he finds "no reason to suppose" so (p. 101, n. 6). He then considers whether the "b" might stand for "black" as in the character of Black Dick in "Frederick and Basilea". McMillin appears inclined to consider "'samme'" as one of the "regular supernumeraries" ([. 239).
Attendant, Validore's man, and possibly Euphrodore in "The Dead Man's Fortune"
