Round-Up: November 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). Updated earlier this 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 mure et rana, Mouse and Frog - although this is quite different from the usual story of the mouse and the frog, as you can see just by glancing at the marvelous Barlow image for the story! In this story, the frog does not trick the mouse, but instead they go head to head in battle, like jousting knights!

Here is the Barlow illustration - notice the frog riding in on a lobster, with the mouse mounted on weasel!
