Aesop's Fables, translated by Laura Gibbs (2002)
362. THE OSTRICH
Perry 418 (Ignatius
Diaconus, Tetrasticha 1.22)
War broke out between all the beasts and the birds. When the ostrich
was captured, she fooled both sides by being both a bird and a beast:
she showed the birds her head, and the beasts her feet.
You cannot trust a two-faced associate.
