DID YOU KNOW THAT AISOPOS WAS FROM ANATOLIA (FRIGIAN)       




Aisopos who lived between 620-560 B.C. is a master who has given lessons to people for ages with 200 tales that have reached until today. According to antique sources, Aisopos was from Frigia. He was born in Kutahya in Anatolia, sold as a slave to someone named Iadmon of Samos and settled in Athens after being liberated by this person who was impressed by his wisdom. While he was defending the common people here, he drew the anger of dictator Peistratos and was eventually punished with death and cast away from a cliff.

He is famous for stories named fable, the heroes of which are animals and they include a lesson and an advice. His stories were compiled and written much later than him, around 300 B.C.
