Fabula: De Lupo et Sue

Today's podcast is the audio for one of the fables in Barlow's Aesop: De Lupo et Sue, the story of the wolf's unexpected offers of help during the sow's labor. You can find out more about this fable - including grammar commentary and English translation - at the website.

longius abeat;
Lupi enim benevolentia
constabat non praesentia, sed absentia.
Here is the illustration of the fable by Francis Barlow:
