Description

Aesop, a Greek slave who lived about 550 BC, told a version of this fable. The story was later recited in ancient Rome, where runaway slaves and criminals were often forced to fight wild animals in the arena. The fable has a satisfying moral: 'A kindness is often repaid.' This, as well as its strong drama, has made it a popular story for many centuries. Set in North Africa and Rome about 140 BC.show more
