At about the same time Babrius turned the fables into Greek choliambics.A 3rd-century author, Titianus, is said to have rendered the fables into prose in a work now lost.

Later he travels to the courts of Lycurgus of Babylon and Nectanabo of Egypt – both imaginary rulers – in a section that appears to borrow heavily from the romance of Ahiqar.

In The Aesop Romance, Aesop is a slave of Phrygian origin on the island of Samos, and extremely ugly.

At first he lacks the power of speech, but after showing kindness to a priestess of Isis, is granted by the goddess not only speech but a gift for clever storytelling, which he uses alternately to assist and confound his master, Xanthus, embarrassing the philosopher in front of his students and even sleeping with his wife.

Next appeared an edition in elegiac verse, cited by the Suda, but the author's name is unknown.

Phaedrus, a freedman of Augustus, rendered the fables into Latin in the 1st century CE.
