Aletheia …


“A man was journeying in the wilderness and he found Aletheia (Truth) standing there all alone. He said to her, ‘Ancient lady, why do you dwell here in the wilderness, leaving the city behind?’ From the great depths of her wisdom, Aletheia replied, ‘Among the people of old, lies were found among only a few, but now they have spread throughout all of human society!’”
[This fable is preserved only in a Latin text. Aesop’s Aletheia (Truth) is Veritas in the Latin – 6 BC]
