    The ancient Greeks themselves believed that Aesop lived in the sixth century BCE on the island of Samos. And it’s still a topic of lively scholarly debate whether Aesop really existed or not. That’s not my interest here. It’s irrelevant, as far as I’m concerned, whether Aesop was a “real guy” or not. Aesop's Fables, or the Aesopica, is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave and storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between and BCE. Of diverse origins, the stories associated with his name have descended to modern times through a number of sources and continue to be reinterpreted in different verbal registers and in popular as well as artistic media.
