Xenophon of Ephesus


Xenophon of Ephesus

Xenophon of Ephesus (fl. 2nd century–3rd century?) was a Greek writer. His surviving work is the "Ephesian Tale of Anthia and Habrocomes", one of the earliest novels as well as one of the sources for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

He is not to be confused with the earlier and more famous Athenian soldier and historian, Xenophon.
