This is the bucolic story of two foundlings, brought up by goatkeepers and shepherds on the island of Lesbos, who gradually fall in love.

Notable among ancient romances for its perceptive characterizations, Daphnis and Chloe traces the development of the protagonists love for each other from childlike innocence to full sexual maturity, the successive stages marked by adventures. The novels picture of nature and rural life offers its own enchantments.

Parthenius of Nicaea in Bithynia, a Greek poet, was brought to Rome in 73 BCE as a prisoner of war. After his release he settled in Italy and worked as poet and teacher. Virgil was one of his students. Partheniuss poetry, mainly elegiac, is lost, and his only extant work is Erotica Pathemata, an anthology of prose summaries of love stories from Greek literature, collected apparently for the use of Roman poets.
