M0827 - M0828 - M0829

828. Rusticus in Stercoribus Nutritus. Rusticus, qui nutritus erat in fumo et in stercoribus animalium, et cum transisset prope apothecariam ubi species aromaticae terebantur, non valens ferre odorem corruit, quasi semivivus nec potuit convalescere aut confortari donec, portatus ad domum suam, ad fetorem fumi et stercorum reverteretur.




M0828 = Perry630. Source: De Vitry 191. This is Perry 630. Compare the fable of the beetle at home in his manure pile, #691.
