Houghton: Moral Significance of Animals in Greek Proverbs
Moral Significance of Animals as Indicated in Greek Proverbs by Herbert Pierrepont Houghton (1915)
Ah, the days when you could submit a PhD dissertation that was just 65 pages in length! The focus is on animals represented in many proverbs: the goat, the fox, the ox, the horse, the camel, the dog, the hare, the lion, the wolf and the donkey, along with some notes about minor animals, birds, reptiles and insects.
