Illustrated: Asinus, Lupi, et Canes


M0228 - M0229 - M0230
229. Asinus, Lupi, et Canes. Asinus aegrotabat; famaque exierat eum cito moriturum. Ad eum igitur visendum cum lupi canesque venissent peterentque a filio quomodo pater eius se haberet, ille per ostii rimulam respondit, “Melius quam velletis.”

Lupi et Asinus Aegrotus

M0229 (not in Perry). Source: Abstemius 64. This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; Perry omitted most of Abstemius’s fables. Compare the fable of the wolf offering to be midwife to the sow, #331.
