A meter of verse.[1]
Babrias or Babrios, [wrote] Myths or Fables: for they are in choriambs, in ten books. This man changed some of the fables of Aesop from his prose tales into verse; that is choriambs.[2]
Greek Original:
Χορίαμβος: μέτρον στίχων. Βαβρίας ἢ Βάβριος, Μύθους ἤτοι Μυθικά: εἰσὶ γὰρ διὰ χοριάμβων, ἐν βιβλίοις δέκα. οὗτος ἐκ τῶν Αἰσωπείων μύθων μετέβαλεν ἀπὸ τῆς αὐτῶν λογοποιί̈ας εἰς ἔμμετρα: ἤγουν τοὺς χοριάμβους.
Notes:
[1] The choriamb is an element of lyric verse, consisting of a long syllable, two shorts, and another long: see LSJ at web address 1.
[2] Quoted from beta 7 (q.v.). His fables are in choliambic verse ("limping iambics": cf. chi 424), not choriambics. For Aesop see alphaiota 332, alphaiota 334, alphaiota 335.
