Aesop's Fables: Babrius

Babrius 113 = Perry 365

Μάνδρης ἔσω τις πρόβατα συλλέγων δείλης
κνηκὸν μετ' αὐτῶν λύκον ἔμελλε συγκλείειν.
ὁ κύων δ' ἰδὼν πρὸς αὐτὸν εἶπε "πῶς σπεύδεις
τὰ πρόβατα σῶσαι, τοῦτον εἰσαγὼν ἥμιν;" 

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.
