Θηρευτὴς καὶ λύκος

The Hunter and the Wolf = Perry 404 (English translation: Oxford Aesop 372)

Ἀνήρ τις θηρευτής, λύκον θεασάμενος προσβάλλοντα τῇ ποίμνῃ καὶ πλεῖστα τῶν προβάτων ὡς δυνατὸν διασπαράττοντα, τοῦτον εὐμηχάνως θηρεύει καὶ τοὺς κύνας αὐτῷ ἐπαφίησι, φθεγξάμενος πρὸς αὐτόν “ὦ δεινότατον θηρίον, ποῦ σου ἡ προλαβοῦσα ἰσχύς, ὅτι τοῖς κυσὶν ὅλως ἀντιστῆναι οὐκ ἠδυνήθης.”

Οὗτος δηλοῖ ὡς τῶν ἀνθρώπων ἕκαστος ἐν τῇ ἰδίᾳ τέχνῃ καθέστηκε δόκιμος.

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

Ἀνήρ τις θηρευτής,

λύκον θεασάμενος

προσβάλλοντα τῇ ποίμνῃ

καὶ πλεῖστα τῶν προβάτων

ὡς δυνατὸν διασπαράττοντα,

τοῦτον εὐμηχάνως θηρεύει

καὶ τοὺς κύνας αὐτῷ ἐπαφίησι,

φθεγξάμενος πρὸς αὐτόν

“ὦ δεινότατον θηρίον,

ποῦ σου ἡ προλαβοῦσα ἰσχύς,

ὅτι τοῖς κυσὶν

ὅλως ἀντιστῆναι οὐκ ἠδυνήθης.”

Οὗτος δηλοῖ

ὡς τῶν ἀνθρώπων ἕκαστος

ἐν τῇ ἰδίᾳ τέχνῃ

καθέστηκε δόκιμος.
