Image: Spica Glorians


M0736 - M0737 - M0738

737. Spica Glorians. Cum agricola falcem messibus iam pararet, spica caput erectum ad auras tollebat. Hinc gloriatur, et sorores ceteras, humum spectantes curvo capite, despicit. Quarum una ait, “Si tibi, ut nobis, granis refertum esset, hoc caput non ita tolleres.” Superbia in capite vacuo laxe habitat.



M0737 (not in Perry). Source: Desbillons 14.1 (adapted into prose). This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; it appears original to Desbillons, as he cites no source. Compare the fable of the olive tree and the gourd vine, #716.
