Perry's Index to the Aesopica

Perry reserves 431 for a long story narrated by Callimachus about the language of humans and animals. Various fragments of this work by Callimachus continue to be discovered.

You can find a compilation of Perry's index to the Aesopica in the gigantic appendix to his edition of Babrius and Phaedrus for the Loeb Classical Library (Harvard University Press: Cambridge, 1965). This book is an absolute must for anyone interested in the Aesopic fable tradition. Invaluable.
