So the story seems to have justification for its likeness to a fabliau in its origin. The name of Piers' master at Jerusalem, which appears as Goyle m the Met. Hom., is IwiXoi in the Greek text; and the original of Dob-Daffe appears less picturesquely as xapaxaitDv, or in the translation Amens. All the derivatives which I have found save that of the Met. Horn. refer more or less indirectly to John the Almoner. The version of the Legenda Aurea, cap. XXVII. (ed. Graesse, p. 126), is briefer than that of the Met. Hom., but it follows the original almost as closely. It does not state what the beggar's wager was. In it, morever, Petrus was taken sick two days after he threw the loaf at the beggar. So this can hardly be the source whence our author took the story. The version of Leg. Aurea is found in the paraphrase by Jean de Vignay, Legende Doree, fol. 40(a), and in Caxton's Golden Legend. In the Speculum Morale, lib. I., dist. 104, pars 3, is found a brief version with no mention of the beggars, etc. In lib. II., dist. 6, pars 2, it is told again and with much detail except at the end. Another XIII. century version is the fragment contained in the Alpha. Narr. by Etienne de Besancon (MS. Bibl. Nat. lat. 15913, fol. 34(b) ), where the story is told up to the point where Petrus awakes. The incident of the mantle is told as a separate anecdote on the same leaf. In the XIV. century the story appears in Latin in the Sermones de tempore of John Herolt, no. 81, p. 463. Petrus is not named in the beginning of this version, but incidentally later on he is mentioned by name. William of Wadington and Robert of Brunne give the story but with some differences.
