Lucius is travelling through Thessaly, in Greece. At a party, Lucius is asked what he thinks of Thessaly. He replies that he is impressed but worried by stories he has heard about the local witches, who cut pieces of flesh from corpses. One of the guests laughingly points to a man in the corner of the room, saying that he has suffered this fate while still alive. The man, called Thelyphron, reluctantly agrees to tell his story.
