Image: Canes et Leonis Pellis

M0359 - M0360 - M0361
360. Canes et Leonis Pellis. Pellem leonis repererant canes eamque lacerabant dentibus. Quos videns vulpes, sic eos allocuta esse fertur, “Leo iste, si adhuc in vivis esset, experiremini ungues eius fortiores vestris dentibus.”

M0360 = Perry406. Source: Syntipas 19 (translated into Latin). This is Perry 406. Compare the fable of the dog chasing the lion, #361.
