Aesop's Fables (Chambry edition)

Chambry 212 = Perry 341

Λέων λυσσῶν καὶ ἔλαφος.

Λέων ἐλύσσα. Τοῦτον δὲ ἔλαφος ἐξ ὕλης ἰδὼν εἶπεν· "Οὐαὶ ἡμῖν τοῖς ταλαι πώροις· τί γὰρ μαινόμενος οὗτος οὐχὶ ποιήσει, ὃς καὶ σωφρονῶν οὐκ ἦν ἡμῖν φορητός;"
Ὅτι τοὺς θυμώδεις ἄνδρας καὶ ἀδικεῖν εἰθισμένους πάντες φευγέτωσαν ἀρχὴν λαβόντας καὶ δυναστεύσαντας.

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.
