Quintilian also ignores Phaedrus when he speaks of fables in verse some fifty years later (cf. p. li above). On the other hand, Seneca could have been just as unaware of fables published by Phaedrus since the time of Sejanus as he appears to be of the two books of fables written by Phaedrus which Sejanus had condemned in a public prosecution.

The Fables of Phaedrus By: Phaedrus (c. 15 BC - c. AD 50) The fable is a small narrative, in prose or verse, which has as its main characteristic the aim of conveying a moral lesson (the “moral”), implicitly or, more normally, explicitly expressed.

Fables are still interesting for their structural repetition throughout space and time (like many other aspects of folklore and culture).
