AESOPICA.NET: Aesop’s Fables Online presents “1418 English fables, 646 Latin fables and 780 Greek fables (translations provided), as well as links to French (La Fontaine) and Spanish,” in the words of aldiboronti at Wordorigins, who once more has dug up treasure from the midden heap that is the internet. The Perry index lists all the fables; clicking on any one of them (eg, Perry 1: Eagle and Fox) gets you links to all available versions. Do you know how long I’ve been looking for Aesop in Greek? Thanks yet again, aldi!


  1. And you can get the Fable of the Day sent right to your own webpage! How cool is that? Thanks for pointing this out.

  2. That site is put together by my friend Laura Gibbs (we were grad students at UC Berkeley together). She’s the author of the recent Oxford World Classics translation of the complete Aesop, and knows more about ancient fables than just about anyone alive. You should really check out the rest of her site at There’s a ton of good stuff there.

  3. Thanks, I will!
