Seggu Jātaka (No.217)

The story of a greengrocer who, in order to test his daughter, Seggu, took her to the woods and made as if wishing to seduce her. However, she begged for his protection, and he, convinced of her virtue, gave her in marriage to a good young man.

The story was told in reference to a greengrocer of Sāvatthi, who similarly tested his daughter. The characters in both stories were identical. J.ii.179 f.
