The translations of Maximos Planudes are curiosities of the Byzantine literature. Apart from their high literary quality, the works of the Byzantine philologist-monk represented the complete material of the medieval Latin trivium and quadrivium: the dialogue Somnium Scipionis of Cicero together with the commentary of Macrobius, the Consolatio Philosophiae of Boethius, the Dicta Catonis as well as the Heroides and Metamorphoses of Ovid. The theme of this paper is the translation of the Heroides and its reception in the Byzantine world and later in Western Europe during the humanism. The final conclusion is that the letters of Ovid were adapted to the Byzantine curriculum and used as sample texts in the progymnasmata -method.
