Archias of Mytilene
A raven plying his black wings in the pellucid sky, saw once a
scorpion emerging from the ground, and swooped down to catch it;
but the scorpion, as the raven dashed down to the ground, was not
slow to strike his foot with its powerful sting, and robbed him
of life. See how the luckless bird met with the fate he was
preparing for another by means of that other.
