Image: Equus Circensis Molae Iugatus


M0274 - M0275 - M0276
275. Equus Circensis Molae Iugatus. Equus senior fuit quondam molendae farinae venumdatus. Molae iugatus vesperam misellus totam atque ideo suspirans, “Cursibus,” inquit, “ex qualibus quales in gyros propter farinulas compellor.” Ne superbias nimium prae iuvenilis vigoris ferocia; multis senectus inter labores consumpta fuit.

M0275 = Perry318. Source: Babrius 29 (translated into Latin prose). This is Perry 318. For a happier story about a race horse, see #264.
