This chapter considers fragments (174 and 177 IEG) belonging to one of the most important and well-known epodes of Archilochus (172-81), in which ‘The Fable of the Fox and the Eagle’ is narrated. They are extracts from a larger study in which all fragments of Archilochus that contain fables and animal metaphors will be examined, with an emphasis on the particular ethos of each animal.
