Aesop's Fables: Babrius

Babrius 96 = Perry 98

Λύκος παρῄει θριγκόν, ἔνθεν ἐκκύψας
ἀρνειὸς αὐτὸν ἔλεγε πολλὰ βλασφήμως.
κἀκεῖνος εἶπε τὰς σιαγόνας πρίων·
"ὁ τόπος μ' ἐλοιδόρησε, μὴ σὺ καυχήσῃ."
[Ὁ μῦθος ὀρθῶς πᾶσι τοῦτο μηνύει,
μηδεὶς διὰ καιρὸν ἰσχύων τι γαυρούσθω.]

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.
