[387a] and:“ Under the earth like a vapor vanished the gibbering soul,
Hom. Il. 23.100and:“ Even as bats in the hollow of some mysterious grotto
Fly with a flittermouse shriek when one of them falls from the cluster
Whereby they hold to the rock and are clinging the one to the other,
Flitted their gibbering ghosts.
Hom. Od. 24.6-101

1 Said of the souls of the suitors slain by Odysseus.
