Abstract
This article considers the Lucianic Errites a receptor of Greek novels and focusses on Chariton's Callirhoe, as hypotext. It argues that Chariton's construction of Callirhoe as a double of Aphrodite, and the plot that this predicament generates, are central to the presentation of the statue of Aphrodite in the Erotes. This is revealed by consistent verbal echoes and by the re-enactment of memorable scenes in the novel. The Erotes emerges as an important document for the early reception of Greek novels, and its author as an attentive reader of them.
