Aesop's Fables (Chambry edition)

Chambry 177 = Perry 64


Δηχθείς τις ὑπὸ κυνὸς περιῄει ζητῶν τὸν ἰασόμενον. Εἰπόντος δέ τινος οὕτως ὡς ἄρα δέοι αὐτὸν ἄρτῳ τὸ αἷμα ἐκμάξαντα τῷ δακόντι κυνὶ βαλεῖν, ὑποτυχὼν ἔφη· "Ἀλλ' ἐὰν τοῦτο πράξω, δεήσει με ὑπὸ πάντων τῶν ἐν τῇ πόλει κυνῶν δάκνεσθαι. "
Οὕτω καὶ ἡ τῶν ἀνθρώπων πονηρία δελεαζομένη ἔτι μᾶλλον ἀδικεῖν παροξύνεται.

Chambry published a multivolume edition of the fables for the Belles Lettres series in 1925/6 (Paris). He later revised this into a single volume, omitting hundreds of the fable variants. In addition, the numeration between these two volumes is not consistent. The texts here are taken from the 1925/6 edition, but the numeration follows the stanard single volume edition.
