112 Hipyllos thrust Myrmex aside and, while he mentioned his masters name, he himself put his lips to the door and replied in a low tone:At the words and laugh a mist of blood seemed to dim Charicleias eyes; she seized a sword and with the scream of a wild beast rushed upon the wretch, who was clinging with one hand to the rigging of the pirate-vessel and with the other to the Samian. He had no time to parry the attack, no time to open his lips, ere the glittering weapon was buried to the hilt in his breast. He moved his head and neck several times as if stifling, a stream of blood welled from his mouth, the red cap fell off, his hands loosed their grip, and he fell headlong into the dark gulf between the ships.
