Query: Delech, Histoire tirée du Thalmud Babylonien

I came across a short story titled "Delech, Histoire tirée du Thalmud Babylonien," (Delech, Story Drawn from the Babylonian Talmud) in an eighteenth-century French anthology.  "Delech" probably refers to the protagonist.  Is anyone familiar with that name (which might be pronounced "Delesh" or "Delek" but not "Delekh") or a Midrashic story with that title?  

Many thanks in advance.
