Illustrated: Canis et Taurus


M0358 - M0359 - M0360
359. Canis et Taurus. Canis cum tauro pugnam inire parabat et “Facile vincam,” dixit, “namque dentibus longe melior sum.” Sed ille, capite prono irruens, hunc necopinantem cornibus fodit. Fabella vetat te cum ullo hoste congredi, nisi ante noris qua minus, qua plus valet.
Taurus et Canis

M0359 (not in Perry). Source: Desbillons 11.5 (adapted into prose). This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; Desbillons cites Alberti as his source. Compare the fight between the donkey and the boar, #151.
