Arxes, a young man of Corinth, is both delighted and dreadfully embarrassed: his father is about to buy him a slave girl of his very own! Love follows its usual rocky course until the girl hears an itinerant Jewish philosopher talking in her own language. The big question is, can Lucius, Arxes' Roman friend, get the girl he wants?
The book has extensive footnotes which quote original sources to give a dramatic picture of life in ancient Greece.
