M0086 (not in Perry). Source: Abstemius 76. This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; Perry omitted most of Abstemius’s fables. The notion of the “wolf in sheep’s clothing” is also a Biblical motif, as in Matthew 7: Attendite a falsis prophetis, qui veniunt ad vos in vestimentis ovium, intrinsecus autem sunt lupi rapaces. Compare the fable of the donkey in the lion’s skin, #234. Read a Fabula Facilis version of this fable.
