Perry's Index to the Aesopica
Fables exist in many versions; here is one version in English:
THE EUNUCH AND THE FORTUNE-TELLER
A eunuch went to a fortune-teller to find out whether he would ever have children.
The fortune-teller sacrificed an animal and spread out its liver for examination.
He then said, 'When I look into the liver, I see that you will be a father,
but when I look upon your face, you do not even appear to be a man!'

in the Aesopic fable tradition. Invaluable.
