Inde me commodum egredientem continuatur Pythias condiscipulus apud Athenas Atticas meus, qui me post aliquam multum temporis amanter agnitum invadit, amplexusque ac comiter deosculatus ‘Mi Luci,' ait ‘Sat Pol diu est quod intervisimus te, at Hercule exinde cum a Vestio magistro digressi sumus. Quae autem tibi causa peregrinationis huius?' (Meta. 1,24)

For most of us there are many masters and varied causes for intellectual peregrinations. For the editors of this volume, for many scholars of the ancient novel, and for an uncounted number of students of Classics and the Humanities, Gareth Lon Schmeling is a master and motivator of our scholarly and academic careers, especially of our forays into the ancient novel. And above all Gareth is a true friend. This volume of essays is a small, and, we hope, representative offering of our thanks to Gareth for his contributions to the study of the ancient novel in particular and Classics in general, for his guidance and support in our own endeavors, and for his own special humanity.
