Image: Canis et Domicilium Eius


M0345 - M0346 - M0347
346. Canis et Domicilium Eius. Hieme contractus et implicitis membris cubans, canis, quo minus frigori expositum esset corpus, spatium illud ad domum faciendam in qua viveret designavit. Postea, in aestate membra expandens et corpus extendens, animadvertit notatum spatium non magis convenire neque se capere posse, itaque nec necesse nec facile sibi esse tantas aedes extruere.
