Illustrated: Feles et Gallinae


M0394 - M0395 - M0396
395. Feles et Gallinae. Feles, cum audisset gallinario quodam in stabulo gallinas aegrotare, se medicum fingens, propriisque artis medicae instrumentis arreptis, ad eas confestim accessit et, ante stabulum adstans, quomodo se haberent interrogavit. Illae respondentes, “Optime quidem,” dixerunt, “si tu tamen hinc procul secesseris.”
