Image: Dives et Pauper, Iter Facientes


M0997 - M0998 - M0999

998. Dives et Pauper, Iter Facientes. Dives cum paupere iter faciebat. Ille sumptuosam togam gerebat; hic laceris vestibus membra induerat. Latrones in illos subito incidunt. Divitem gladiis occidunt, et veste spoliant. Pauperem interea neglegunt; nihil enim habet.



M0998 (not in Perry). Source: Thomas 6. This fable is not in Perry’s catalog, although it is quite similar to the story of the two mules, #252.
