Image: Noctua et Sol


M0463 - M0464 - M0465
464. Noctua et Sol. Noctua Solem culpabat quod eius radii nimis splendide fulgerent. Sol autem dixit, “Ne me, sed oculos tuos culpa.” Stultos vitia sua latent.



M0464 (not in Perry). Source: Stoddart p. 109. This fable is not in Perry’s catalog, but you can find a debate between the owl and the sun in the Speculum Sapientiae 3.17.
