Image: Coclea et Gallus

M0641 - M0642 - M0643
642. Coclea et Gallus. Gallus, dum ad arboris excelsae culmen volitando se tollere nititur nec potest, attonitus cocleam huc pervenisse videt. Scire autem discupit et rogat quonam modo id efficere pennis carenti licuerit. “Quid tum,” inquit illa, “si volare nescio? Adrependi artem, magis utilem, calleo.”

M0642 (not in Perry). Source: Desbillons 9.11 (adapted into prose). This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; it appears original to Desbillons, as he cites no source. Compare the story of the turtle and the rabbit, #637.
