Illustrated: Asini Spongiis et Sale Onusti


M0218 - M0219 - M0220
219. Asini Spongiis et Sale Onusti. Asini duo forte una iter faciebant, onustus alter spongiis, alter sale. Cumque hic sub sarcina praegravante lapsus esset in transitu profluentis vadoso, sale aqua contacto et in tabem liquidam soluto, undis evasit ab omni onere liber, gestiens. Spongias alter ferens, hoc viso, ut ipse sarcina sua sese levaret, vado alto sponte procubuit; sed, spongiis aquam usque combibentibus depressus, imo flumine mersus haesit. Non una agendi ratio cunctis congruit.

M0219 = Perry180. Source: Faernus 6 (adapted into prose). This is Perry 180. I like Faernus’s version because it features two donkeys! Other versions are about one donkey who first discovers the salt dissolves, and then later tries to do the same thing when loaded with sponges, often at the cost of his own life.
