Round-Up: September 25

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).

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 by me, plus the rollicking 17th-century translation by Sir Roger L'Estrange. Today's fable is De Cane oves domini sui occidente, a quo suspensus est: The Dog who slew his master's sheep and was hanged by him. In other words: with friends like that, who needs enemies? Ha!

LatinCrossword.com: This Latin crossword puzzle goes with the story of the dog and his master's sheep (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.
