Aesop's Fables
Latin: Fabulae. Collection of fables credited to Aesop (620—560 BC), a slave and story-teller that lived in Ancient Greece. Aesop's Fables become a blanket term for collections of brief fables, usually involving personified animals. The fables remain a popular choice for moral education of children today.


  • Aesop (620—560 BCE), Greek slave and story-teller credited with most of the Fables
  • Phaedrus (20 BCE – 50s), Roman fabulist and compiler of the first Latin edition of the Fables
  • Babrius (1st century CE), Greek writer and compiler of an influential edition of the Fables, from which are derived most modern collections
