Perry's Index to the Aesopica

Perry reserves 462 for an anecdote about Queen Arsinoe's grief for her son. The story comes from Plutarch's Consol. ad Apoll. 19.


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.
