after such a strange run of fortune was now in
the area of he theatre amidst thousands of specta-

very surprising to the beholders, who, upon
hearing an account of the whole matter from

lion to be given up into his possession. Andro-

lion about the streets of Rome, the people every
where gatjiering about them, and repeating to

D who was the lion's physician."
