Illustrated: Galerita Laqueo Capta


M0504 - M0505 - M0506
505. Galerita Laqueo Capta. Galerita, cum laqueo capta esset, “Heu me miseram,” plorans aiebat, “atque infelicissimam volucrem! Aurum nemini, nec argentum, nec quidquam aliud pretiosum surripui, atqui parvum tritici granum mortis mihi causa fuit.”


Alauda in Laqueo

Click here for a SLIDESHOW of all the Griset images. The mouse is not part of the Latin fable, but you can imagine a passer-by asking the lark what happened, and the lark making her sad reply.

M0505 = Perry251. Source: De Furia 228. This is Perry 251. Compare the fable of the mouse in the pot, #201.
