Anthi’a.
 
The lady-love of Abroc’omas in Xenophon’s romance, called Ephesi’aca. Shakespeare has borrowed from this Greek novel the leading incidents of his Romeo and Juliet, especially that of the potion and mock entombment. N.B. This is not the historian, but a Xenophon who lived in the fourth Christian century.   1
