Aesop's Fables (Chambry edition)

Chambry 15 = Perry 280

Αἴξ καὶ αἰγοβοσκός.

Αἰγοβοσκὸς τὰς αἶγας ἀνεκαλεῖτο πρὸς τὴν μάνδραν. Μία δὲ ἐξ αὐτῶν ὑπελείφθη, ἡδύ τι βοσκομένη. Ῥίψας δ' ὁ ποιμὴν πέτραν τὸ κέρας αὐτῆς κατέαξεν εὐστοχήσας. Ἐδυσώπει δὲ τὴν αἴγα μὴ εἰπεῖν τοῦτο τῷ δεσπότῃ. Ἡ δὲ εἶπεν· " Κἂν ἐγω σιωπήσω, πῶς κρύψω; πρόδηλον γάρ ἐστι πᾶσι τὸ κέρας μου κεκλασμένον."
Chambry published a multivolume edition of the fables for the Belles Lettres series in 1925/6 (Paris). He later revised this into a single volume, omitting hundreds of the fable variants. In addition, the numeration between these two volumes is not consistent. The texts here are taken from the 1925/6 edition, but the numeration follows the stanard single volume edition.
