De Viro Zelotypo


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 Viro Zelotypo, qui uxorem dederat custodiendam: The Jealous Husband, who handed over his wife for safe-keeping. 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:
amicus, comperire, copula, custodire, custos, fidere, herba, impudicus, ingens, integer, maritus, mulier, pratum, provincia, pulex, uxor, versutia, violare, vir, zelotypus
