Fabula: De Accipitre Columbam Insequente



Today's podcast is the audio for one of the fables in Barlow's Aesop: De Accipitre Columbam Insequente, the story of the hawk who was caught as he was hunting a dove. You can find out more about this fable - including grammar commentary and English translation - at the Aesopus.Ning.com website.

“Nec haec te laeserat.”
Here is the illustration of the fable by Francis Barlow:
