Limaçon ("the snail") is the satirical name given to a character created by Charles Etienne Boniface for his play Limaçon de Dichter in 1825. Based on his former colleague and friend, J. Suasso de Lima, name became a central feature of a feud between them, resulting in a series of further biting satirical monologues and duologues performed and published in Cape Town by the two men, including Zamenspraak tusschen Limançon een Dichter en een Prozaisch Gaskonjer (De Lima) and De Twee Slakken, of Limaçon, Sen. en Limaçon, Jun. (Boniface) .
