The Golden Ass was a book written by Apuleius obtained by Ezio Auditore in the 16th century 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".
