Aesop's Fables, translated by Laura Gibbs (2002)

Perry 428 (Aristophanes, Wasps 1427 ff.)

A man of Sybaris fell out of his chariot and hit his head on the ground, since he was not a very experienced driver. Another man who was a friend of his came up and said, 'Everybody should stick to what he knows!'

Note: For another Sybaritic fable, see Fable 180.
