Fabula: De Pastoris Puero et Agricolis



Today's podcast is the audio for one of the fables in Barlow's Aesop: De Pastoris Puero et Agricolis, the story of the boy who cried wolf. You can find out more about this fable - including grammar commentary and English translation - at the Aesopus.Ning.com website.
Puer

dum auxilium imploranti non subveniunt,
fiunt oves praeda lupo.
Here is the illustration of the fable by Francis Barlow:
