Overview

The Life and History of ¿¿¿sop is involved, like that of Homer, the most famous of Greek poets, in much obscurity.

In his desire alike to instruct and to be instructed, he travelled through many countries, and among others came to Sardis, the capital of the famous king of Lydia, the great patron in that day, of learning and of learned men. He met at the court of Croesus with Solon, Thales, and other sages, and is related so to have pleased his royal master, by the part he took in the conversations held with these philosophers, that he applied to him an expression which has since passed into a proverb, "¿¿¿ᾶ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿ ὁ ¿¿¿¿¿¿ύ¿¿¿"-"
