This essay analyses the five extant witnesses of the Fables Pierre Aufons in their codicological contexts. The figures of Solomon and Marcoul, introduced into this French verse translation of Petrus Alfonsi’s Disciplina clericalis, are considered here as emblematic of the internal dynamics of the Fables Pierre Aufons and are used as a starting point for considering the varied ways these dynamics are aligned in the distinct copies and contexts of this intriguing story collection.
