Summary expansion
Aethiopica, so called because the beginning and end of the romance take place in Ethiopia, is the tale of two lovers, Theagenes and Chariclea, who, after many vicissitudes on land and sea, including the near sacrifice of Chariclea, are happily reunited and married. The story comes from a manuscript found in Matthias Corvinus' library after the sack of Buda in 1526, and was printed for the first time in its original language in Basle in 1534; see Brunet, J.-C. Manuel du libraire et de l'amateur de livres (5e ├ęd.), II:87. During the 16th and 17th-centuries, it influenced Tasso, Cervantes, and Racine, among others
