LATIN VIA FABLES: AESOPUS

Aesop's Fables... in Latin!

Fābula 37: Dē Leōne et Mūre (with macrons)

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


Leō, laqueō captus, cum ita sē irrētītum vidēret ut nullīs vīribus sēsē explicāre posset, Mūrem rogāvit, ut, abrōsō laqueō, eum līberāret, prōmittens tantī beneficiī sē nōn futūrum immemorem. Quod cum Mūs prōmptē fēcisset, Leōnem rogāvit ut fīliam eius sibi trāderet in uxōrem. Nec abnuit Leō ut benefactōrī suō rem grātam faceret. Nova autem nupta, ad virum veniens, cum eum nōn vidēret, cāsu illum pede pressit et contrīvit.
