      Lucian of Samosata was born around AD in Samosata in Roman Commagene, or ancient Armenia. The Mimes of the Courtesans features a series of dialogues between two courtesans or a courtesan and another, discussing love and sex and the relationship between lovers. Lucian of Samosata (c. AD – c. AD) was the author of more than 70 known dialogues & treatises and is considered the supreme Ancient Greek satirist. Throughout his writings, Lucian interconnects the stories of gods and men, rich and poor, philosopher and skeptic, tyrant and subject, all with an eye for entertainment and humor.
