Illustrated: Pisces e Sartagine Exsilientes


M0578 - M0579 - M0580
579. Pisces e Sartagine Exsilientes. Pisces, adhuc vivi, in sartagine ferventi oleo coquebantur. Quorum unus “Fugiamus hinc, fratres,” inquit, “ne pereamus.” Tunc omnes, pariter e sartagine exsilientes, in ardentes prunas deciderunt. Maiori igitur dolore affecti, damnabant consilium quod ceperant, dicentes, “Quanto atrociori nunc morte perimus.”



M0579 = Perry725. Source: Abstemius 20. This is Perry 725 (Perry included only a few fables of Abstemius in his catalog). Compare the fable to the deer and the lion, #159.
