Aelian offers us entertaining vignettes of rural life in twenty letters that portray the country ways of their imagined writers. This volume also contains invented letters--mostly to fictitious characters--by Alciphron and, in the same genre, the Erotic Epistles of Philostratus (probably Flavius Philostratus, author of Apollonius of Tyana).
