In Panfilo’s fifth tale (V, 1), Aristippus is a Cypriot nobleman whose fortune includes having the boorish and rude Cimon among his many children. He shows himself to be less noble than his newly improved son when he suggests that Cimon complete his education by having sex with Iphigenia, although Cimon prefers to wait until he can honorably marry her.
