Eraicon-Revelations

The Flute Girl was a book written by Menander. During the early 16th century, the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze discovered a hidden copy of this book in Constantinople.

Summary

This obscure Greek drama from the fourth century BCE, thought lost for over a millennium, contains one of the earliest descriptions of ancient Byzantium, referring to the city as a rowdy port full of drunks and crooks. Whether this was surprising to audiences at the time is unknown, but that this was worth mentioning seems significant of something. Jealousy, perhaps.

Trivia

  • While a copy of the play is retrieved in-game by Ezio, in real life, the book remains lost, with only fragments of it having survived.
