Babrius

author of a collection of fables in Greek. Nothing is known of the author. The fables are for the most part versions of the stock stories associated with the name of Aesop. Babrius has rendered them into the scazon, or choliambic metre, which had already been adopted from the Greek by the Roman poets Catullus and Martial.
