M0977 (not in Perry). Source: Aelian, Historia 14.30. This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; Perry did not use Aelian as a source. There are several famous Carthaginians who bore the name “Hanno,” and it is not certain to which of them Aelian’s story refers. There is a similar story about an otherwise unknown “Psapho of Libya” in Erasmus, Adagia 1.2.100.
