Aesop's Fables (Chambry edition)

Chambry 315 = Perry 366

Ποιμὴν καὶ λύκου σκύμνος.

Ποιμὴν μικρὸν λύκον εὑρὼν ἐθρέψατο, εἶτα σκύμνον γενόμενον ἐδίδαξεν ἁρπάζειν ἐκ τῶν σύνεγγυς ποιμνίων. Ὁ λύκος δὲ διδαχθεὶς ἔφη· Ὅρα μή πως σὺ ἐθίσας με ἁρπάζειν πολλὰ τῶν σεαυτοῦ προβάτων ζητήσῃς. Ὅτι οἱ τῇ φύσει δεινοὶ ἁρπάζειν καὶ πλεονεκτεῖν μαθόντες τοὺς διδάξαντας πολλάκις ἔβλαψαν. 

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.
