Description

An epic story by Apuleius. There are various transformation, the main one being the character of Lucieus ( spelling? ) being turned into a donkey by a magic salve. Lucieus works for an enchantress and he spies on her changing herself into an owl. Lucieus begs the woman's daughter to show him how to transform. He uses wrong salve and turns into a donkey. However, before the mother returns so the daughter can beg her to restore Lucieus, thiefs attack and steal the horses and Lucieus. From there, Lucieus goes from owner to owner, many abusive, until finally he is brought to a shrine and a kind Goddess ( called The Golden Goddess ) restores his humanity.

Other transformations include a cheating husband who is turned into a beaver.
