Image: Hircus Equitans


M0323 - M0324 - M0325
324. Hircus Equitans. Hircus semel factus est servus asini, et vidit eum simplicem et humilem. Ascendit asinum et voluit equitare. Asinus, iratus, erexit pedes anteriores et cecidit retro super dorsum suum, et hircum oppressit et interfecit, dicens, “Si asinus est dominus tuus, ne equites ipsum.”



M0324 = Perry623. Source: Odo, Fable 73. This is Perry 623. Compare the fable of the donkey who dreams of being a master, #250.
