Aesop's Fables: Babrius

Babrius 80 = Perry 249 

Κάμηλον ἠνάγκαζε δεσπότης πίνων
ορχεῖσθ' ὑπ' αὐλοῖς κυμβάλοις τε χαλκείοις.
ἡ δ' εἶπ' "ἐμοὶ γένοιτο κἀν ὁδῷ βαίνειν
μὴ καταγέλαστον, μήτι πυρρίχην παίζειν."

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.
