Image: Lupa et Canis

M0097 - M0098 - M0099
98. Lupa et Canis. Canis, lupam insequens, crurum pernicitate et robore gloriabatur, fugere lupam credens quod infirmior esset. Conversa autem, illa sic allocuta fertur canem, “Non tam tuas quam domini tui metuo minas.”

Here is an image for the story (image source) - just imagine having this she-wolf snarling back at you!
M0098 = Perry407. Source: Syntipas 38 (translated into Latin). This is Perry 407. Compare the fable of the donkey chasing a lion, #235.
