Biography:

620 - 550 BC (?). Supposed to have been a slave on the Greek island of Samos, the old storyteller's historical existence is in question. Whoever composed them and when, it is likely that Aesop's fables were repeated for centuries before the formal 'morals' were attached to them. Some collections of Aesop's fables incorporate fables by later authors such as La Fontaine.
