How to use Androcles in a sentence
Many hundred years ago, there lived in the north of Africa a poor Roman slave called Androcles.
Immovable with fear, Androcles stood rooted to the spot, waiting for the lion to spring on him and tear him limb from limb.
Making a low moan as if in great pain, it stood licking its huge paw, from which Androcles now saw that blood was flowing freely.
Then Androcles saw that a monster thorn had entered the paw, making a deep cut, and causing great pain and swelling.
So after hiding in many places, Androcles was at last compelled to flee into wild regions, where there were few inhabitants.The Wonders of the Jungle, Book Two|Prince Sarath Ghosh
