Illustrated: Leo et Tauri

4. Leo et Tauri Duo. In duos tauros leo faciebat impetum, lautas sibi epulas quaerens. Illi, coniunctis viribus, opponunt cornua, medios ne irruere possit leo. Duobus ergo impar leo viribus, dolo agere coepit, sicque est allocutus alterum, “Amicum tuum si prodideris mihi, incolumem hinc ego te dimittam.” Qua usus fraude, facili utrumque necavit negotio.

leo et quattuor tauri

Click here for a SLIDESHOW of all the Barlow images. In different versions of this story, there are different numbers of bulls - here in Barlow's image you can see four bulls, but in the version I used for the book there are just two bulls to divide and conquer.
