Perry's Index to the Aesopica
Fables exist in many versions; here is one version in English:
THE LIONS AND THE HARES
Only a ridiculous person would try to make laws to govern the [most superior
members of a society. Indeed, those gods among men] would probably respond as
did the lions in the story of Antisthenes when the hares harangued the assembly,
holding that everyone was to be considered of equal worth.

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.
