Aesop's Fables (Chambry edition)

Chambry 339 = Perry 374


(variant version from Chambry's first edition)

Τράγος καὶ ἄμπελος.

Τράγος δέ ποτε βλάστην ἀμπέλου τρώγων,
τούτῳ προσεῖπε· Τί με βλάπτεις ἀδίκως;
μὴ γάρ, ὦ τράγε, οὐκ ἔστιν ἄρτι χλόη;
Ὅμως, πάναφρον, ποτὲ σοῦ θυομένου,
ἐγὼ τὸν οἶνον παρέξω τῷ σῷ φόνῳ.

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.
