Daphnis and Chloe by Longus

Image of Daphnis and Chloe

Longus s "Daphnis and Chloe" (second or early third century CE), in which an idealized pastoral environment provides the setting as a boy and girl discover their sexuality, is one of the great works of world literature. Xenophon s "Anthia and Habrocomes" (first century CE) is perhaps the earliest extant novel.
