Invention of Aristaeus - Arcadian Master

creatures, of a type marvellous to see, swarm together,
without feet at first, but soon with whirring wings as well

and more and more try the clear air, until they burst out,
like rain pouring from summer clouds,
or arrows from the twanging bows,
whenever the lightly armed Parthanians first join battle.
