Fābula 30: Dē Lupō et Grue (with macrons)

For your reading pleasure, here is a fable with macrons:

Lupus, osse in gutture retentō, cum multum cruciārētur, Grui pretium obtulit, sī illūd ē gutture extraheret. Grūs autem, cum ōs ē gutture Lupī extraxerat, pretium sibi promissum postulat. Cui Lupus, subrīdens simulque dentēs acuens, dixit, “Satis pretiī tibi esse dēbet quod ex meō ōre caput sine capitis iactūrā ēdūxeris.”
