Most widely held works by Jacques Amyot
Daphnis & Chloe by Longus( Book )

183 editions published between 1587 and 1995 in 5 languages and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Longus's ravishing Daphnis and Chloe (second or early third century CE), one of the great works of world literature, an innocent boy and girl gradually discover their sexuality in an idealized pastoral environment. In Xenophon's Anthia and Habrocomes (first century CE), perhaps the earliest novel and a new addition to the Loeb Classical Library, a newlywed couple, separated by mischance, survive hair-raising adventures and desperate escapes as they traverse the Mediterranean and the Near East en route to a joyful reunion. The pairing of these two novels well illustrates both the basic conventions of the genre and its creative range. -- jacket

En l'île de Lesbos, chassant dans un bois consacré aux Nymphes, je vis la plus belle chose que j'aie vue en ma vie, une image peinte, une histoire d'amour. Le parc, de soi-même, étoit beau; fleurs n'y manquoient, arbres épais, fraîche fontaine qui nourrissoit et les arbres et les fleurs; mais la peinture, plus plaisante encore que tout le reste, étoit d'un sujet amoureux et de merveilleux artifice; tellement que plusieurs, même étrangers, qui en avoient ouï parler, venoient là dévots aux Nymphes, et curieux de voir cette peinture.
