CACUS THE CENTAUR

***

Cacus was a thief

Stole strong Hercules’ cattle

Now punishes thieves

***

NOTE: Most of the Centaurs guard the violent sinners who are in the river of boiling blood, but since Cacus was a thief, he is in this bolgia. When sinners such as Vanni Fucci blaspheme against God, Cacus carries snakes and fire-breathing dragons to them.
