This novel by Achilles (second cent. A.D.) "The Adventures of Leucippe and Cleitophon follows the usual patterns of the genre (a much hindered love - between two protagonists - triumphs in the end over numberless difficulties, terrifying dangers, and complicated adventures - voyages, shipwrecks, tortures, guiles, abductions, attacks by pirates and robbers etc.); the story is told - this is unusual in the genre - in the first person by Cleitophon himself, whom Achilles pretends to have met in Sidon. The authors style is typically Atticistic.." (Oxf. Class. Dict.). - Brunet I: p.37 - Graesse I: p.13 "Cette jolie edition, qui se joint à la collection des Elzeviers, et qui est complète et fait d'apres plusieurs manuscrits, a beaucoup de fantes d'impressionn." - Willems No 1611.
