Aesop's Fables: Babrius

Babrius 109 = Perry 322

"Μὴ λοξὰ βαίνειν" ἔλεγε καρκίνῳ μήτηρ,
"ὑγρῇ τε πέτρῃ πλάγια κῶλα μὴ σύρειν."
ὁ δ' εἶπε "μῆτερ ἡ διδάσκαλος, πρώτη
ὀρθὴν ἄπελθε, καὶ βλέπων σε ποιήσω." 

Ben Perry, Babrius and Phaedrus (Loeb). This edition contains the Greek texts of Babrius, with a facing English translation, and an extensive index covering the Greek and Latin fable tradition. This book is an absolute must for anyone interested in the Aesopic fable tradition. Invaluable.
