Perry's Index to the Aesopica

Perry reserves 442 for a long anecdote about the origin of blushing reported by Gregory of Nazianzos in his Poem. Moralia (Migne 37, III, 898).

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.
