Perry's Index to the Aesopica

Perry reserves 443 for a fragment of Semonides: "A heron found a buzzard eating an eel from the Maeander River and took it away from him."

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.
