Diego Velázquez. Aesop.
Aesop is a legendary Greek fabulist, who lived in the 6th century BC. According to various legends he was a Phrygian slave, who was granted his freedom, or a confidant of King Croesus of Lydia. The medieval tradition made him an ugly cripple. The Fables attributed to him are most probably a compilation of tales from many sources
