Aesop or Esop, known for the genre of fables ascribed to him, was by tradition born a slave and was a contemporary of Croesus and Solon in the mid-6th century BC in ancient Greece. Aesop's existence remains uncertain, and no writings by Aesop survive, but numerous fables attributed to him were gathered and set down in writing across the centuries and in many languages in a storytelling tradition that continues to this day; various collections under the rubric Aesop's Fables are currently available. In many of these stories animals speak and have human characteristics; see for example the Tortoise and the Hare or the Ant and the Grasshopper. » Aesop on Wikipedia
