This is a rendition of Aesop by Diego VELAZQUEZ: Aesop (c. 1639-40).

Aesop's Fables, or the Aesopica, is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave and storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 564 BCE. 

The fables originally belonged to the oral tradition and were not collected for some three centuries after Aesop's death. 

Aesop Fables, were known for their teachings, because they almost alway had a moral statement at the end of the story.  If he wrote stories without a moral, what was he trying to communicate to the children.


Aesop - The Serpent and the Dog is one of the fables that does not have a moral written at the end.. 

Read it and let me know what you think the MORAL should be.

The Fable - Aesop The SERPENT and the eagle

Aesop - The Serpent and the Eagle  - A SERPENT and an Eagle were struggling with each other in deadly conflict. The Serpent had the advantage, and was about to strangle the bird. A countryman saw them, and running up, loosed the coil of the Serpent and let the Eagle go free. The Serpent, irritated at the escape of his prey, injected his poison into the drinking horn of the countryman. The rustic, ignorant of his danger, was about to drink, when the Eagle struck his hand with his wing, and, seizing the drinking horn in his talons, carried it aloft.
