Image: Lepus in Puteo et Vulpes


M0175 - M0176 - M0177
176. Lepus in Puteo et Vulpes. Lepus, sitim ut aqua extingueret, in puteum descenderat largisque haustibus se satiaverat. Inde cum vult reverti, occlusa via, inops consilii, vehementer se cruciat. Quod animadvertens vulpes, quae forte illum ibi offenderat, “Maximo,” inquit, “mehercule versaris in periculo. Sed prius te oportuit deliberare, qua via ex puteo posses ascendere, ac deinde demum descendere.”
