Perry's Index to the Aesopica
Fables exist in many versions; here is one version in English:
THE DONKEY AND THE WOLVES
There was a wolf who ruled over the other wolves and decreed that whatever they
might catch while hunting would be kept in common and divided equally by the
whole pack. A donkey who happened to be passing by remarked, 'What a fine idea
from the mind of a wolf! But how is it that yesterday I ran into you and saw
you hiding your quarry away in your lair?' Put to shame by the donkey, the wolf
abolished the law he had made.

You can find a compilation of Perry's index to the Aesopica in the gigantic appendix to his
edition of Babrius and Phaedrus for the Loeb Classical Library
(Harvard University Press: Cambridge, 1965). This book is an absolute must for anyone interested
in the Aesopic fable tradition. Invaluable.
