  • Episode Description
  • A love story of two Greek slaves is dramatized. The drama relates how Rhodope, slave to a cruel Greek family, rejected her impending freedom from bondage, in exchange for Aesop's release, since in him she recognized a rare human being whose insight and learning could help the world. A free man, Aesop became advisor at the courts of Kings and Emperors, but he sought always for a reunion with his beloved Rhodope, who sacrificed so much for his personal cause.moreless
