Pericles is a Shakespearean play about the Greek, Pericles, who flees by ship from Antiochus, who presented him a riddle that would have resulted in his death either way. Pericles shipwrecks near Pentapolis, marries the king's daughter, Thaisa, who, after giving birth to Marina, is accidently thrown overboard in a storm, survives and becomes a priestess of Diana. After beautiful Marina is kidnapped, sent to a brothel, maintains her virginity by becoming a tutor instead, Pericles finds her and, later, Thaisa.
