Illustrated: Leo, Mus, et Vulpes


M0028 - M0029 - M0030
29. Leo, Mus, et Vulpes. Leo cum olim dormiret, per os eius mus forte discurrit. Tum ille, consurgens, quaquaversum circumagebatur, eum quaeritans qui inde transierat. At vulpes, eum conspicata, graviter obiurgabat quod leo nimirum cum esset, murem pertimuisset. Cui ille “Ego vero,” respondit, “de eius voluntate tantummodo irascor.” Haec profecto docent quod prudentes homines ne parva quidem negligere debeant.

Vulpes et Leo (De Familiaritate)

Click here for a SLIDESHOW of all the Griset images. This is actually an illustration for a different fable, but it works for this one, too!

M0029 = Perry146. Source: De Furia 95. This is Perry 146. Compare the story of the bull and the gnat, #696.
