Satyrs, led as usual by their ‘father’ Silenus,
are in servitude to Sciron;
they tended, not their master’s animals for his enjoyment,
but passers-by whom they lured with prostitutes

until Theseus came by,
and freed the satyrs.

and your foot won’t stretch beyond the cushion.

… or fix to the branches of wild fig trees…
