Aesop's Fables... in Latin!

Fābula 39: Dē Aquilā et Testūdine (with macrons)

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


Certāmen inīre voluit Testūdō reptilis cum Aquilā vēlōcissimā. Locus dēsignātus est et, quī spatio trium diērum ad prōpositum locum prius vēnerat, victor salūtārētur. Aquila tardigradam contempsit Testūdinem, autumans sē ālārum impetū posse brevissimē ad locum āvolāre. Negligēns igitur sēcessit, aliīs intenta, sed Testūdō indēfatīgābilī labōre et sollertiā infrā tempus et ante Aquilam arrēpsit ad locum et omnium calculīs victor ēvāsit.
