Round-Up: July 26

Here is a round-up of today's Bestiaria Latina blog posts (you can browse through previous round-ups at the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives).

AudioLatinProverbs.com: Today's proverb is Auriculas asini Mida rex habet. In English: King Midas has donkey's ears. Listen to the audio, and learn the story of King Midas and hsi donkey ears - as well as a story about the Roman Emperor, Nero.

AudioLatin.com: Here is the audio for 10 more Latin proverbs - just the audio, but there is a link to a page where you can get English translations and commentary on the proverbs, too. Today's group also features a famous mythological character, Sisypuhus: Frustra saxum volvit Sisyphus.

LatinViaFables.com: I'm continuing to work my way through the 15th-century Latin fables of Abstemius! With each fable I'm posting the Latin text, a segmented Latin text, along with an English translation. Today's fable is De mulo et equo: The Mule and The Horse, a nicely told story on the familiar theme of how the simple life is much better than the lives of the rich and famous.

LatinCrossword.com: This Latin crossword puzzle goes with the story of the horse and the mule (see above). Below is a smaller image of the crossword; visit LatinCrossword.com for a larger version you can print along with a word list, clues, and the solution, too.
