On the basis of the Aristotelian study about friendship in the Nicomachean Ethics and also of the emotion called in Rhetoric, this paper tries to analyze the relationship of philia in the Greek Novel and to stablish the similiarities and differences in the caracterization of friendship in three of the surviving texts. The corpus selected is related with characters defined as ´friends´, that is to say: Chaereas and Polycharmos in Chaereas and Callirhoe´ of Chariton of Aphrodisias; Habrokomes and Hippothoos in the Ephesiaca of Xenophon of Ephesus; Clitophon, Clinias and Menelaos in Leucippe and Clitophon of Achilles Tatius.
