(William Mulready, 1807: source)
M0189 (not in Perry). Source: Desbillons 11.24 (adapted into prose; shortened). This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; Desbillons cites La Motte as his source. Although the etymology is not certain, the Greek word “lynx” may be related to the word for light, referring to the lynx’s supposed ability to see in the dark.
