TATIUS, Achilles
Ἐρωτικων Ἀχιλλεως Τατιου, sive de Clitophontis & Leucippes amoribus libri VIII, ex bibliotheca Cl. Salmasii
Lugduni Batavorum: Franciscum Hegerum, 1640. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Achilles Tatius was a 2nd-century Greek author who is known only for his single surviving work 'The Adventures of Leucippe and Clitophon'. This story is a classic love story with elements of fantastical beasts, self-torture, and homoeroticism. This work also includes a conversation on whether women or young boys make better lovers, certainly controversial for any era. This 1640 Greek and Latin edition was edited by Claude Saumaise.
