Achilles Tatius’ Leukippe and Kleitophon quotes Homer less frequently than other Greek novels, but it often refers to the epic tradition in a subtle and sophisticated way. A few intertexts suggest that  gender issues (such as role exchanges between men and women) and cultural mediations (other texts, literary genres, or figurative arts providing a bridge between epic and the novel) are important  elements in the evolution of an epic hero into a novelistic character. Parallels with the Homeric scholia show that Achilles Tatius’ writing style can combine learning and humour, two of the most important features of the ‘heroism’ of some of his characters.
