Aesop's Fables (Chambry edition)

Chambry 319 = Perry 367

Πόλεμος καὶ Ὕβρις.

Θεοὶ πάντες ἔγημαν ἣν ἕκαστος εἴληφεν ἐν κλήρῳ. Πόλεμος παρῆν ἐσχάτῳ κλήρῳ· Ὕβριν δὲ μόνην κατέλαβεν· ταύτης περισσῶς ἐρασθεὶς ἔγημεν. Ἐπακολουθεῖ δὲ αὐτῇ πανταχοῦ βαδιζούσῃ. Ὅτι ἔνθα ἂν προέλθῃ ὕβρις ἢ ἐν πόλει ἢ ἐν ἔθνεσι, πόλεμος καὶ μάχαι εὐθὺς μετ' αὐτὴν ἀκολουθεῖ.
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.
