consulentem audirent,
Hirundo cum homine foedus init
cohabitatque cum eo.
Ceteris Avibus
e lino retia fiunt et laquei.

quis sit velocior
liquido cognosces.”
Elegerunt igitur Vulpem,

ambobus
et locum et terminum cursus constitueret.

omni segnitie remota,
iter arripiens,
haud quievit
donec ad terminum pervenerat.
Lepus vero,
pedibus fidens,
postquam paululum quievit,
somno excitatus,
quantum pedes valuerunt
ad terminum cucurrit
ubi,
cum Testudinem quiescentem reperit,
se fatetur
a Testudine superatum.

Fabula: De Anu et Ansere



Today's podcast is the audio for one of the fables in Barlow's Aesop: De Anu et Ansere, the story of the goose that laid the golden eggs. You can find out more about this fable - including grammar commentary and English translation - at the Aesopus.Ning.com website.
Anus quaedam
Anserem alebat,
qui
illi quotidie
ovum aureum excludebat.
Anus avarissima,
existimans
Anserem
habuisse in visceribus
fodinam auream,
cupiditate commota,
Anserem confestim interfecit
et, cum viscera perscrutabatur
et unicum tantum ovum deprehenderat,
spe sublactata inani,
exclamabat,
“O me infelicem,
tantae crudelitatis consciam,
quae,
non modico contenta lucro,
iam omnia perdiderim.”
