Perry's Index to the Aesopica

Perry reserves 467 for the satyr who wanted to embrace the fire but who was warned not to do by Prometheus. The anecdote is found in Plutarch, De capienda ex inimicis utilitate 2.

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.
