There is a cavern with a dark mouth; there is a precipitous path, the hero of "Tirins dragged Cerberus along, tied with twisted chains of hard metal, resisting and rolling his eyes as he hated the bright light of the sun; trembling with rage, the infernal dog filled the air with the sinister barks of his three throats and sprinkled the verdant fields with his white foams; we are told that they condensed in the shape of seeds and they gained an evil power drawing nourishment from the fertile and rich soil; and as they grow luxuriantly among hard rocks, the peasants call them aconites." Ovid Metamorphosis VII, 409-419.
