Aesop's Fables: Babrius

Babrius 133 = Perry 360

Ὄνος παλιούρων ἤσθι' ὀξέην χαίτην.
τὸν δ' εἶδ' ἀλώπηξ, ἑρπύσασα δ' εἰρήκει·
"πῶς, οὗτος, ἁπαλῇ κἀξανειμένῃ γλώσσῃ
σκληρὸν μαλάσσεις προσφάγημα καὶ τρώγεις;" 

Ben Perry, Babrius and Phaedrus (Loeb). This edition contains the Greek texts of Babrius, with a facing English translation, and an extensive index covering the Greek and Latin fable tradition. This book is an absolute must for anyone interested in the Aesopic fable tradition. Invaluable.
