Perry's Index to the Aesopica
Fables exist in many versions; here is one version in English:
THE JAR GOES TO COURT
There was a woman of Sybaris who broke a jar. The jar then got someone to testify
as a witness, but the woman of Sybaris said, 'I swear by the Maiden, you would
have been far wiser if you'd gone right away to get a bandage, instead of making
a court-case out of it.'

You can find a compilation of Perry's index to the Aesopica in the gigantic appendix to his
edition of Babrius and Phaedrus for the Loeb Classical Library
(Harvard University Press: Cambridge, 1965). This book is an absolute must for anyone interested
in the Aesopic fable tradition. Invaluable.
