Little is known about the famous Greek fable writer Aesop. He probably lived around 600 BC and is said to have come from Phrygia. He is regarded as the father of fable-telling. Aesop was a Greek slave. Any records on this fabulist are based on legends and myths. It is said that he was very close to the people and shared his wisdom with the people in humorous and funny tales. Having served under several different masters as a slave, Aesop is said to have been set free by the Samian Iadmon and subsequently he is said to have lived at the court of king Croesus. King Croesus, who was amazed by Aesop’s smart wit, sent him on various missions. During one of these missions to Delphi, Aesop is said to have been killed by the local priestess for blasphemy. The European tradition of fable writing was founded on the basis of Aesop’s legacy. ()
