Perry's Index to the Aesopica

Perry reserves 452 for a long story about the the wolf and the donkey on trial, reported in the Progymnasmata of an anonymous Byzantine rhetorician (published in Walz, Rhet. Gr. I 597 ff.).

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.
