THE SUMMARY OF C. SULPITIUS APOLLINARIS.
PAMPHILUS has married Philumena, to whom, when a virgin, he formerly, not
knowing who she was, offered violence; and whose ring, which he took off by
force, he gave to his mistress, Bacchis, a Courtesan. Afterward he sets out
for Imbros, not having touched his bride. Having become pregnant, her mother
brings her over to her own house, as though sick, that her mother-in-law may
not know it. Pamphilus returns; detects her being delivered; conceals it;
but determines not to take back his wife. His father imputes this to his
passion for Bacchis. While Bacchis is exculpating herself, Myrrhina, the
mother of the injured girl, by chance recognizes the ring. Pamphilus takes
back his wife, together with his son.
