Aesop's Fables (Chambry edition)

Chambry 182 = Perry 136

Κύων καὶ λαγωός.

Κύων θηρευτικὸς λαγωὸν συλλαβών, τοῦτον ποτὲ μὲν ἔδακνε, ποτὲ δὲ αυ̣τοῦ τὰ χε ίλη περιέλειχεν. Ὁ δὲ ἀπαυδήσας ἔφη πρὸς αὐτόν· " Ἀλλ', ὦ οὗτος, παῦσαί με καταδάκνων ἤ καταφιλῶν, ἵνα γνῶ πότερον ἐχθρὸς ἤ φίλος μου καθέστηκας."
Πρὸς ἄνδρα ἀμφίβολον ὁ λόγος εὔκαιρος.

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.
