The new Loeb edition of Chariton by professor George Goold provides the best available text of Chariton and a useful translation and introduction...At a time when interest in the ancient novel is growing rapidly a Loeb of Chariton is particularly welcome. The translation is literal enough not to confuse the reader who uses it as an aid to understanding the Greek; the format of the series often appeals to students and amateur classicists who use it in this way, so this clarity is a great merit...At the same time, the translation is smooth and readable...There is a good index to the translation and introduction, and allusions are generously referenced in footnotes. (John Birchall Scholia Reviews
Goold gives us the most satisfactory text of the novel currently available. (Greece and Rome
One of the hottest properties in Classics today is the ancient novel...and we might hope that now, under the enlightened editorship of G.P. Goold, the Loeb Classical Library is prepared to respond substantively to this new interest...The high quality and usefulness of this edition of Chariton should persuade teachers that it can be both utilis et dulcis
in the classroom. (Gareth Schmeling The Classical Outlook
