Image: Canis Venaticus et Vulpes


M0360 - M0361 - M0362
361. Canis Venaticus et Vulpes. Canis venaticus leonem casu oblatum insequebatur. Cum vero, conversus, ille rugiisset, expavescens canis retro fugit. Quem ubi vulpes conspexit, “O improbum caput,” ait, “tune leonem insecutus es, cuius ne rugitum quidem ferre sustinuisti?”



M0361 = Perry132. Source: De Furia 292. This is Perry 132. Compare the story of the hunter pursuing a lion, #847, or the fable of the dogs and the skin of the lion, #360.
