LATIN VIA FABLES: AESOPUS

Aesop's Fables... in Latin!

Fābula 38: Dē Gallo Gallināceo (with macrons)

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


Gallus gallināceus, dum armātō pede sterquilīnium dissipandō disiicit, invenit gemmam: “Quid (inquiens) rem tam fulgurantem reperiō? Sī gemmārius invēnisset, laetābundus exultāret, quippe quī scīvit pretium. Mihi quidem nulli est ūsui, nec magni aestimo. Ūnum etenim hordeī grānum est mihi longē pretiōsius quam omnes gemmae, quamvis ad invidiam micent diēī opprobriumque sōlis.”
