Aesop was an Ancient Greek teller of fables and stories. He was born about 620 BC. His date of death is unknown. He was said to have been a hunchbacked slave, and even of African descent. These assertions have not been proven.
Aesop left no writings. His fables were transmitted orally, and collected as Aesop's Fables. A few of the best known are "The Tortoise and the Hare", "The Grasshopper and the Ant", and "The Fox and the Grapes".
