Ysopet, also spelled Isopet, in French literature, a medieval collection of fables, often versions of Aesop’s Fables.

The word Ysopet was first applied to a collection of tales (103 in all) written by Marie de France in the late 12th century. They were said to be based directly on an English version of Aesop’s Fables (Esope) attributed to King Alfred the Great, of Wessex, and no longer extant. Another source, better-documented, is the medieval Romuli (falsely credited to Romulus, son of Tiberius), which includes works of the Latin writers Phaedrus and Avienus.
