Sinis

by Micha F. Lindemans
A Corinthian robber, also known as the Pinebender because he used to fasten his victims to two pine-trees bend towards the earth, and then leave them to be rent asunder when the trees were released. He was captured by Theseus and put to death in the same way (Ovid VII, 440).
