Aesop's Fables: Babrius

Babrius 54 = Perry 310

Εὐνοῦχος ἦλθε πρὸς θύτην ὑπὲρ παίδων
σκεψόμενος, ὁ θύτης δ' ἁγνὸν ἧπαρ ἁπλώσας
"ὅταν μέν" εἶπε "ταῦτ' ἴδω, πατὴρ γίνῃ,
ὅταν δὲ τὴν σὴν ὄψιν, οὐδ' ἀνὴρ φαίνῃ."

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.
