Lucian of Samosata was born around 125 AD in Samosata in Roman Commagene (modern-day Turkey). "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. These dialogues show the General influence of New Comedy and there are also many resemblances with Alciphron ’s "Letters of the Courtesans ".
