Χελιδὼν καὶ κόραξ

The Swallow and The Raven = Perry 229 (English translation: Oxford Aesop 192)

Χελιδὼν καὶ κόραξ περὶ κάλλους ἀλλήλοις ἐμάχοντο. καί φησιν ὁ κόραξ τῇ χελιδόνι “τὸ σὸν κάλλος ἐν μόνῳ τῷ ἔαρι καταφαίνεται, ἐν δὲ τῷ τοῦ χειμῶνος καιρῷ οὐ δύναται πρὸς τὸ ψῦχος ἀντισχεῖν· τὸ δὲ ἐμὸν σῶμα καὶ τῷ κρύει τοῦ χειμῶνος καὶ τῷ καύσωνι τοῦ θέρους γενναίως ἀνθίσταται.”

Οὗτος δηλοῖ ὅτι ὑγεῖα καὶ ἰσχὺς σώματος κρείττων κάλλους καὶ ὡραιότητος πέφυκε.

From Ben Perry’s Aesopica (Urbana IL: 1952).
