 A historical novel that deals with this very issue: The Mask of Apollo by Renault. I use it in my Greek myth course. If you don't know it, the narrator is the son of an actor who follows his father's footsteps in Athens and environs --- and on to Syracuse. My myth students get very intrigued with it.
