Image: Canis, Lupus, et Pastor

M0365 - M0366 - M0367
366. Canis, Lupus, et Pastor. Intus septa quidam vesperi congregans oves, fulvum una lupum erat inclusurus. Quo conspecto, canis pastori “Quomodo festinas,” dixit, “oves servare, qui istum ad nos intromittis?”

M0366 = Perry365. Source: Babrius 113 (translated into Latin prose). This is Perry 365. Compare the fable of the lion in the stable, #14, or the man who let a fox into the henhouse, #367.
