Perry's Index to the Aesopica

Perry reserves 439 for Callimachus' debate between the laurel and the olive, preserved in Oxyrhynchus papyrus 1011.

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.
