M0602 - M0603 - M0604
603. Rana et Hydrus. Hydrus in quadam palude ranam persequebatur. Quem cum illa evadere non posset, conversa dicebat, “Ne me devora, hydre, quae nulli umquam nocui.” Cui hydrus “Clamor tuus,” inquit, “minaeque, quibus die noctuque obstrepis, te maleficum animal esse testantur. Quod autem non noceas, impotentia causa est; dentes enim non habes.”
