Aesop's Fables (Chambry edition)

Chambry 106 = Perry 98

Ἔριφος ἐπὶ δώματος ἑστὼς καὶ λύκος.

Ἔριφος ἐπὶ τινος δώματος ἑστώς, ἐπειδὴ λύκον παριόντα εἶδεν, ἐλοιδόρει καὶ ἔσκωπτεν αὐτόν. Ὁ δὲ λύκος ἔφη· Ὦ οὗτος, οὐ σύ με λοιδορεῖς, ἀλλ' ὁ τόπος. Ὁ μῦθος δηλοῖ ὅτι πολλάκις καὶ ὁ τόπος καὶ ὁ καιρὸς δίδωσι τὸ θράσος κατὰ τῶν ἀμεινόνων.

Chambry published a multivolume edition of the fables for the Belles Lettres series in 1925/6 (Paris). He later revised this into a single volume, omitting hundreds of the fable variants. In addition, the numeration between these two volumes is not consistent. The texts here are taken from the 1925/6 edition, but the numeration follows the stanard single volume edition.
