THE SUMMARY OF C. SULPITIUS APOLLINARIS.
THE Captain, Thraso, being ignorant of the same, has brought from abroad a
girl who used wrongly to be called the sister of Thais, and presents her to
Thais herself: she in reality is a citizen of Attica
. To the same woman, Phaedria, an admirer of Thais,
orders a Eunuch whom he has purchased, to be taken, and he himself goes away
into the country, having been entreated to give up two days to Thraso. A
youth, the brother of Phaedria, having fallen in love with the damsel sent
to the house of Thais, is dressed up in the clothes of the Eunuch. Parmeno
prompts him; he goes in; he ravishes the maiden; but at length her brother
being discovered, a citizen of Attica
, betroths her who has been ravished, to the youth,
and Thraso prevails upon Phaedria by his entreaties.
