Image: Columba et Pica

M0515 - M0516 - M0517
516. Columba et Pica. Columba, interrogata a pica quid eam induceret ut in eodem semper loco nidificaret, cum eius pulli inde sibi semper surriperentur. “Simplicitas,” respondit. Haec indicat fabula facile esse viros probos saepe decipi.

M0516 (not in Perry). Source: Abstemius 6. This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; Perry omitted most of Abstemius’s fables. For another fable about the “simple” dove, see #424.
