Aesop (Greek fabulist, ca. 620-564 BCE )

Note: It remains uncertain if Aesop was a historical person or legendary. Although known for the fables ascribed to him, no writings by him survive. Numerous fables appearing under his name were gathered across the centuries in a storytelling tradition that continues to this day. In many of these tales animals speak and have human characteristics.
