The Golden Ass was a book written by Apuleius. During the early 16th century, the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze bought a copy of this book from a book shop in Constantinople.


The only work of dramatic fiction written in Latin to survive intact, "The Golden Ass" - as St. Augustine named Apuleius's tale - tells the story of a man who dabbles in carelessly with magic and accidentally turns himself into a donkey. Written in what would later become known as a "picaresque" style, "The Golden Ass" has a wandering, episodic structure, a precursor to later classics like "Don Quixote" and "Tristram Shandy".
