Fable of the Day (Greek): The Hares and The Foxes

Λαγωοὶ καὶ ἀλώπεκες

Another fable from Syntipas - check out the GreekAesop wiki for more information about Syntipas and his fables! I've included the text and a segmented version here; for grammar notes and more information, please visit the wiki.

The Hares and the Foxes = Perry 256 (English translation: Oxford Aesop 51)

Λαγωοί τινες πρὸς ἀετὸν πόλεμον συγκροτοῦντες τὰς ἀλώπεκας εἰς συμμαχίαν προσεκαλοῦντο. αἱ δὲ πρὸς αὐτοὺς εἶπον “ἑτοίμως ἂν εἴχομεν συμμαχεῖν ὑμῖν, εἰ μὴ ᾔδειμεν τίνες τέ ἐστε καὶ τίνι διαμάχεσθε.”

Οὗτος ἐλέγχει τοὺς τοῖς ἰσχυροτέροις προσκρούοντας καὶ ἑαυτοῖς ἐξ αὐτῶν κίνδυνον ἐπάγοντας.
