Bacchides: or, The Twin Sisters

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

Twin sisters, separated at birth to different lands. Later, Mnesilochus falls in love with one of them, only to see his friend Pistoclerus apparently with her. Great complications abound. Eventually all is explained and everyone joins together to carouse. (Parts of Act 1 are fragmentary, but it is easy to piece together what we all miss there so we can enjoy the rest.)
