De Canibus Urbanis


I'm using some new crossword puzzle software (online, fast, easy) to create new puzzles to go with the new Aesop's fables I'm posting at

Today's fable at Latin Via Fables is De Canibus urbanis villaticum insequentibus: City Dogs Chasing a Country Dog. You can visit the Latin Via Fables page for this fable to see the Latin text, English translation and some grammar help.

Word List. Here is an alphabetical word list of the Latin words included in the puzzle:
admonere, audere, canis, commilito, convertere, cursus, dens, exercitus, forte, fugere, imminere, imperator, insequi, miles, periculum, praeceps, repugnare, subsistere, urbanus, villaticus
