[420] By Heracles! they have stings. Do you see them, master?

It was with these weapons that they killed Philippus the son of Gorgias when he was put on trial.

Leader of the Chorus
And you too shall die. Turn yourselves this way, all, with your stings out for attack and throw yourselves upon him in good and serried order, and swelled up with wrath and rage. [425] Let him learn to know the sort of foes he has dared to irritate.

The fight will be fast and furious, by great Zeus! I tremble at the sight of their stings.

Let this man go, unless you want to envy the tortoise his hard shell.
