For evil, he would force down to the earth, “Pine tops to shoot men's bodies through the air. Even the road to Megara is safe, “For you did hurl the robber Scyron,—sheer— over the cliff. Both land and sea denied “His bones a resting place—as tossed about they changed into the cliffs that bear his name. “How can we tell the number of your deeds,— deeds glorious, that now exceed your years! “For you, brave hero, we give public thanks and prayers; to you we drain our cups of wine!” And all the palace rings with happy songs, and with the grateful prayers of all the people.

He ordered his great fleet to tarry not; the hawsers were let loose, and the long oars quickly propelled his brazen-pointed ships.— When Scylla saw them launching forth, observed them sailing on the mighty deep, she called with vain entreaties; but at last, aware the prince ignored her and refused to recompense her wickedness, enraged, and raving, she held up her impious
