JUPITER AND THE FOX
No piece of luck can conceal a depraved nature.
Jupiter had turned the fox into the likeness of a human being and had seated
her on the throne as his queen. But when the fox happened to notice a beetle
creeping out from its hole, she leaped up and began chasing this familiar object
of prey. The gods laughed at the fox as she ran, while the great father of the
gods blushed and renounced his relations with the fox. As he chased her out of
the chamber, Jupiter said, 'Live the life you deserve, since you clearly are
not worthy of my favours!'
