The present article aims to put to the fore possible herodotean influences in Calligone, an ancient greek novel, of which only four fragments survive. these are preserved in pSI vIII 981 and p.Oxy. lXXXIII 5355, both from Oxyrhynchos of the Roman period. Specifically, we deal with the similarities between the Croesus-Adrastus scene in heRODOt. 1.35-44 and Calligone’s suicidal scene contained in pSI vIII 981. the similarities in question constitute a further attestation of the connection between the herodotean text and the ancient greek novel in the era of the Second Sophistic.
