The lusty novel of a mighty adventurer in the unknown, exotic lands beyond the Mediterranean. Eudoxos of the sword - scarred face, the courageous scion of Theon of Kyzikos, had captained daring voyages, held high public offices and faced heart-pounding danger. He had hunted and fished, galloped and sailed, gorged and reveled - and lain with fair women. But now with Rome and Parthia blocking Egypt's expansion to the north and northwest, he embarked on one of the most incredible voyages the world was ever to know! Fifteen centuries before Marco Polo, he set sail for India to meet with dangerous seas, savage elephant corps, the pleasures of exotic dancing girls, and the wrath of lavish, omnipotent rulers of the East. The treasure, if he succeeded, was precious gold and valuable gems, but his greatest quest was a cure for the terrible affliction that had forced his beautiful young wife to deset him.
