In the prologue to the play, Pan, the god of the woods, is seen leaving the Cave of the Nymphs (at Phyle in Attica), and he explains to the audience that the farm on his right belongs to Knemon, a morose and unsociable man who lives with his daughter, Myrrhine, and one old maidservant, Simiche. The farm on his left is worked by Gorgias, Knemon's stepson, aided by his aged slave, Daos, and this is where Knemon's wife has fled to escape her husband's bad temper. Meanwhile, Sostrates, the son of a wealthy Athenian who had come hunting in the area, has seen Myrrhine and fallen in love with her, thanks to the machinations of the mischievous Pan

Samia (the Woman from Samos) by Menander( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For eight centuries after his death Menander was the third most popular poet in the Greek-speaking world, and his plays, through Roman imitations and adaptations, engendered a tradition of European light drama that extends to our own day. But it is only since 1844 that some of the actual texts of Menander's plays have been rediscovered, mostly in Egyptian papyri. Two of these have given us four-fifths of the script of Samia (The Woman from Samos), a play of deception and misunderstanding in which a marriage that everyone desires almost fails to happen, two women and a baby are almost ruined, and a loving father almost loses his only son, because the people at home and the people abroad have both been doing things behind each other's backs - but somehow everything ends happily after all. This is the first full-scale edition with English commentary and is suitable for upper-level students
