Traduction française
A man of Phrygia was riding on an ox. And when he spied a crow, having made the 
proper observation of the omen (for Phrygians are clever at that sort of thing), he 
hurled a stone at it and, by good luck, struck the bird. Accordingly he was much 
pleased, and, thinking that his own ill-fortune had thus been diverted to the crow, he 
picked up the bird, remounted the ox, and rode along. But the crow after a brief 
interval recovered ; and the ox, taking fright, threw the man, and he broke his leg in 
the fall. So that is the way he fared for having shown ingratitude for the sign.
