Aesop's Fables (Chambry edition)

Chambry 190 = Perry 256

Λαγωοὶ καὶ βάτραχοι.

Λαγωοί ποτε πολεμοῦντες ἀετοῖς παρεκάλουν εἰς συμμαχίαν ἀλώπεκας. Αἱ δὲ ἔφησαν· " Ἐβοηθήσαμεν ἂν ὑμῖν, εἰ μὴ ᾔδειμεν τίνες ἐστὲ καὶ τίσι πολεμεῖτε."
Ὁ λόγος δηλοῖ ὅτι οἱ φιλονεικοῦντες τοῖς κρείττοσι τῆς ἑαυτῶν σωτηρίας καταφρονοῦσι.

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.
