Aesop's Fables (Chambry edition)

Chambry 97 = Perry 248

Διογένης καὶ φαλακρός.

Διογένης ὁ κυνικὸς φιλόσοφος λοιδορούμενος ὑπό τινος φαλακροῦ εἶπεν· Ἐγὼ μὲν οὐ λοιδορῶ· μὴ γένοιτο· ἐπαινῶ δὲ τὰς τρίχας ὅτι κρανίου κακοῦ ἀπηλλάγησαν. 
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.
