Round-Up: November 9

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). Updated earlier this week: I'm now starting to go through Barlow's Aesop again, preparing the materials for a forthcoming book with Bolchazy-Carducci! So, as I republish the fables at, they will have accompanying vocabulary and grammar notes, something I had not included in my previous recitation of these fables. Here is the fable I published today: De cornice et urna: The Crow and The Pitcher, which is one of the ancient tales of animal sollertia, animal "wisdom," which made its way into the Aesopic corpus. Instead of being about a foolish animal, as is usually the case, this is a story about a very wise creature!
