447. THE MONKEYS AND THE CITY
Perry 464 (Hermogenes,
The monkeys came together in an assembly to decide whether or not to
found a city. When the monkeys concluded that it would be a good thing
to do, they were about to begin the work. At that point an old monkey
restrained them, saying that they would be captured more easily by enclosing
themselves inside a city's walls.
