Aesop might make some very good short stories for TPRS (with modification).
HERE are some initial thoughts to discuss in this thread about Aesop:
Where to get copyright free editions of Aesop's Fables. Are these all copyright free?
Aesop Parables with notes
Versions: Aphthonius; Babrius; Chambry; Syntipas
Shirleius book, (see below)
- I heard someone once (Solomon P?) mention that there were versions of the fables that were translated from older Greek into Koine.
Shirley, J. (Shirleius): Εἰσαγωγή sive Introductorium Anglo-Latino-Graecum, complectens colloquia familiaria, Aesopi fabulas et Luciani selectiores Mortuorum dialogos in usum scholarum, Londini 1656.
I'll post an image of a page here to save you from a big download...
(ναι, οιδα ὅτι δεδεμενον θεῖναι εικόνας εν επιστολαις ἡμῶν.
απόστρεψον οφθαλμους ὑμῶν απο ἁμαρτιας μου.
θεις εικόνα ὡδε αἰτίαν εχω)
