Image:Mare et Amnis


M0747 - M0748 - M0749

748. Mare et Amnis. Amnen interrogat mare, quando finem influendi facturus sit. Cui amnis, “Cum tu admittendi.” Liberalitatis sunt perpetua beneficia.



M0748 (not in Perry). Source: Daumas 280. This fable is not in Perry’s catalog, but it appears to be inspired by the debate between the Danube and the waters in the Speculum Sapientiae, 3.23.
