Patricia and Carmine,
 
According to my copy of Painter's _Palace of Pleasures_, Painter translates
both Straparola and Cinthio, but not the excerpts Carmine mentions.  I have not
reread the tales to see if they would be helpful for Patricia's project, but
since they are relatively brief, I'll give you Painter's titles.  All of these
stories appear in Tome II.
 
XLIX.  Filenio Sisterno (from Straparola, Piac.Notti, II.2)
         (My mistake, this is in tome I, sorry).
 
XI.  Two Maids of Carthage (from Cinthio, Ecatomithi, giorn.ix,nov.8)
 
XV.  Euphemia and Acharisto  (from Cinthio, viii.10)--this would seem to be the
most likely to fit into the father-daughter motif.
 
I don't think I missed any, though I suppose Painter could have taken a similar
story to one's Carmine mentioned from a different source.  I'll look more
closely if you'd like, but I hope this brief post helps.  Good Luck
 
Russ Mayes
