Abstract
After ten of Lucian's Dialogues, nine fabulous dialogues, twelve of Palaephatus' Explanations, and twenty-one of Herocles' Facetiae, we have in a fifth section thirty-one Aesop's Fables. The brief and sober fable versions seem very close to Handford and Perry; one suspects that they come quite directly from the Greek. Still, the snake in #3 only wounds his benefactor; in the older versions I am aware of, either the snake kills the man or is killed by him. I have not been able to check the versions against L'Estrange, who might be a source. There are no surprises among the thirty-one chosen. There is a T of C at the back of this fragile little book of 69 pages.
