Fabula: De Leone et Vulpe



Today's podcast is the audio for one of the fables in Barlow's Aesop: Leo et Vulpes, the story of the lion who tried to lure the fox into his den. You can find out more about this fable - including grammar commentary and English translation - at the Aesopus.Ning.com website.
Leonem aegrotantem
visebant animalia.
Vulpes solummodo distulit officium.
Ad hanc Leo legatum mittit,
indicans
gratissimam rem aegroto fore
eius unius praesentiam.
Respondet Vulpes
optare se
ut Leo convalescat;
ceterum
se minime visuram,
terreri enim vestigiis
quae indicabant
multum quidem animalium introisse,
sed exiisse nullum.
Here is the illustration of the fable by Francis Barlow:
