The Hunter and The Dog = Perry 403 (English translation: Oxford Aesop 88)

Ἀνὴρ θηρευτὴς παρερχόμενον κύνα ἰδὼν διηνεκῶς αὐτῷ ψωμοὺς προσεπέρριπτε. λέγει οὖν πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα ὁ κύων “ἄνθρωπε, ἄπιθι ἐξ ἐμοῦ· ἡ γὰρ πολλή σου εὔνοια μᾶλλόν με τὰ μέγιστα θροεῖ.”

Οὗτος δηλοῖ ὡς οἱ πολλὰ δῶρά τισι παρεχόμενοι δῆλοί εἰσι τὴν ἀλήθειαν ἀνατρέποντες.

Segmented text for easier reading:

Ἀνὴρ θηρευτὴς

παρερχόμενον κύνα ἰδὼν

διηνεκῶς

αὐτῷ ψωμοὺς προσεπέρριπτε.

λέγει οὖν

πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα

ὁ κύων

“ἄνθρωπε,

ἄπιθι ἐξ ἐμοῦ·

ἡ γὰρ πολλή σου εὔνοια

μᾶλλόν με τὰ μέγιστα θροεῖ.”

Οὗτος δηλοῖ ὡς

οἱ πολλὰ δῶρά τισι παρεχόμενοι

δῆλοί εἰσι

τὴν ἀλήθειαν ἀνατρέποντες.
