Round-Up: October 2

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 Ariete cum tauro pugnante: The Ram Who Fought The Bull. This is a great little story which can use the same play on words in English as in Latin: the ram was really sorry when he decided to use his horns to "ram" the bull who has, after all, some serious horns of his own!
