Τέττιξ καὶ ἀνήρ

The Man and the Insect = Perry 387 (English translation: Oxford Aesop 272)

Τέττιξ, ἄνδρα τινὰ θεασάμενος κατασχεῖν αὐτὸν μηχανώμενον, ἔφη πρὸς αὐτόν· “ἐκείνοις τοῖς ὀρνέοις ἐπέρχου, παρ’ ὧν σοι καὶ ὄφελός τι προσγενήσεται· ἐμὲ γὰρ εἰ κατάσχοις, οὐδὲν ἐξ ἐμοῦ τὸ παράπαν κερδανεῖς.”

Οὗτος δηλοῖ ὡς οὐ χρή τινα τῶν ἀχρήστων καὶ ἀνονήτων ἐφίεσθαι.

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

Segmented text for easier reading:

Τέττιξ,

ἄνδρα τινὰ θεασάμενος

κατασχεῖν αὐτὸν μηχανώμενον,

ἔφη πρὸς αὐτόν·

“ἐκείνοις τοῖς ὀρνέοις ἐπέρχου,

παρ’ ὧν σοι

καὶ ὄφελός τι προσγενήσεται·

ἐμὲ γὰρ εἰ κατάσχοις,

οὐδὲν ἐξ ἐμοῦ

τὸ παράπαν κερδανεῖς.”

Οὗτος δηλοῖ ὡς

οὐ χρή τινα

τῶν ἀχρήστων καὶ ἀνονήτων

ἐφίεσθαι.
