Image: Mare et Fluvii


M0746 - M0747 - M0748

747. Mare et Fluvii. In unum convenerant fluvii, mare ut accusarent quod se, simul atque eius intrassent aquas, dulces quamvis essent et potui apti, falsos et ad bibendum redderet inutiles. Quae mare cum audiisset, aegre ferens innoxium se culpari, “Nolite,” inquit, “aquas intrare postea meas, ne corrumpamini sale.”



M0747 = Perry412. Source: Syntipas 4 (translated into Latin). This is Perry 412. Compare the fable of the stream that became a river, #750.
