The pastoral Daphnis and Chloe, the best of the ancient Greek romances, is attributed to Longus. Nothing is known of his life except what he states in his prologue to the work. His passionate love story of two foundlings raised together by shepherds on Lesbos is sweetly told and has been persistently admired for its bucolic charm.
