Aesop (c. 620 BCE – 564 BCE) was an Ancient Greek fabulist or story teller credited with a number of fables which became collectively known as Aesop's Fables.

During the early 16th century, the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze retrieved a copy of this book which Niccolò Polo had hidden two centuries earlier near Little Hagia Sophia in Constantinople.[1]

Trivia

  • The copy of Aesop's Fables obtained by Ezio was attributed to Socrates, suggesting that he was either the true author or the one who wrote the fables down.
  • In 1721, after suffering the loss of Mary Read, Edward Kenway experienced a disturbing dream in which, among other things, Woodes Rogers recited Aesop's fable about the eagle and the jackdaw.[2]
