Image: Lepus et Canis


M0170 - M0171 - M0172
171. Lepus et Canis. Canis, leporem insequens, prehenderat eumque interdum mordebat, interdum fluentem ex vulnere lambebat sanguinem. Lepus ergo, credens canem malle osculari se, conversus ad illum, “Aut me amice,” inquit, “complectere, aut hostiliter morsu neca.”



M0171 = Perry136. Source: Syntipas 50 (translated into Latin). This is Perry 136. Compare the fable of the fox kissing the lamb, #60.
