Fabula: De Vulpe et Pardo



Today's podcast is the audio for one of the fables in Barlow's Aesop: De Vulpe et Pardo, the story of the debate between the fox and the leopard. You can find out more about this fable - including grammar commentary and English translation - at the Aesopus.Ning.com website.
Vulpes et Pardus
de pulchritudine concertabant
et, Pardo suam pellem versicolorem extollente,
Vulpes,
cum suam praeponere non possit,
dicebat Pardo,
“At quanto ego sum speciosior,
et quam longe formosior,
quae non corpus,
sed animum versicolorem
et variis notis insignem
sortita sum?”
Here is the illustration of the fable by Francis Barlow:
