Illustrated: Lupus et Agnus Caprum Comitans


M0087 - M0088 - M0089
88. Lupus et Agnus Caprum Comitans. Agno, comitanti caprum, lupus fit obviam rogatque cur, relicta matre, olidum sequatur hircum, suadetque ut ad ubera matris distenta lacte redeat. Ille vero, “Mater mea huic hirco, O lupe, commisit. Huic summa cura meae salutis data est. Parenti potius quam tibi obsequendum, qui me seducere istis dictis quaeris et subductum postea decerpere.”

M0088 (not in Perry). Source: Barlow’s Aesop 15. This fable is not in Perry’s catalog, although it is clearly a variant on the story of the lamb who prefers his foster-mother, a goat, to his birth-mother, a sheep, #310.
