Callirhoe: My damned beauty is the cause of my misfortune.
Like most of the theatre plays in the Ancient World, novels like this one were an evasion out of the difficult and dangerous living conditions. It is clear that kidnapped beautiful girls didn't have the same ultimate fortune of Callirhoe.
New here is that her jealous husband is the cause of her misfortune, whereas normally it are the parents or another member of the family.
This book is still a worth-while read and gives a good picture of the living conditions at that time. The psychology is more than just a black and white portrait.
