Aesop's Fables

Mercury And The Sculptor

Mercury was very anxious to know in what estimation he was held by mankind; so he disguised himself as a man and walked into a Sculptor's studio, where there were a number of statues finished and ready for sale.
      
      Seeing a statue of Jupiter among the rest, he inquired the price of it.
      
      "A crown," said the Sculptor.
      
      "Is that all?" said he, laughing; "and" (pointing to one of Juno) "how much is that one?"
      
      "That," was the reply, "is half a crown."
      
      "And how much might you be wanting for that one over there, now?" he continued, pointing to a statue of himself.
      
      "That one?" said the Sculptor; "Oh, I'll throw him in for nothing if you'll buy the other two."
