Image: Sol et Stellae

M0739 - M0740 - M0741

740. Sol et Stellae. Stellae certabant de principatu; suum quaeque splendorem laudabat. Dum certant, apparet sol; omnes evanescunt.

M0740 (not in Perry). Source: Heidelberg 4. This fable is not included in Perry’s catalog. Compare the story of the firefly, #542.
