M0907 = Perry419. Source: De Furia 423 (shortened). This is Perry 419. There were legends of the werewolf in both ancient Greece and Rome, the most famous being the story told in Petronius’s Satyricon. In the legend recounted by Petronius, the man takes off his clothes before his transformation into a wolf, hence the thief’s request here that the innkeeper take charge of his clothes, since he feels the transformation coming on - or claims to, at least!
