[German version] Name given to a Greek novel of which only two fragments are extant; one has yet to be published ; in the other (PSI 981, 2nd cent. AD) the female protagonist, C., enters the tent of an Eubiotos; her grief appears to have been caused by news of the fate of an Erasinus. C. thus reaches for her sword but, with prudent foresight, Eubiotos had already taken it away when he stood next to her. The name Eubiotos and the reference to the Sauromatae suggest a link with Lucian's ‘Toxaris . Fusillo, Massimo (L'Aquila) Galli, Lucia (Florence) Bibliography First edition:
