Aesop's Fables, translated by Laura Gibbs (2002)
376. THE LIONESS AND THE WILD BOAR
Perry 414 (Syntipas
A bull found a lion lying asleep and gored him with his horns until he
was dead. The lion's mother showed up and wept bitterly over her son.
When the wild boar saw the mother lion lamenting, he stood at a safe distance
and said, 'Oh, how many people are also weeping at this very moment because
their sons have been killed by you lions!'
This fable shows that what you have done to others will likewise be
done to you, according to the same measure.
