[70] Sinis; a cruel robber in the isthmus of Corinth. He bent together the boughs of trees with great force, and, fastening travellers to them, untied them; upon which they, endeavouring to recover their former places with great violence, tore the unhappy wretches to pieces.

Mistaque forma; the Minotaur, a monster whose form was partly that of a man, and partly of a bull. It was kept in the Cretan labyrinth, and slain at last by Theseus. Others explain this of Taurus, the commander of Minos' fleet, who was vanquished in a sea-fight by Theseus.
