Aesop's Fables: Babrius

Babrius 39 = Perry 62

Δελφῖνες ἀεὶ διεφέροντο φαλλαίναις.
τούτοις παρῆλθε καρκίνος μεσιτεύων,
ὡς εἴ τις ὢν ἄδοξος ἐν πολιτείᾳ
στάσιν τυράννων μαχομένων εἰρηνεύει.

Ben Perry, Babrius and Phaedrus (Loeb). This edition contains the Greek texts of Babrius, with a facing English translation, and an extensive index covering the Greek and Latin fable tradition. This book is an absolute must for anyone interested in the Aesopic fable tradition. Invaluable.
