The reason of this cutluml is explained by the fable of learius eceivieg Bacchus ilo Attica. and the god was no grateful to him that he taughtl him the art of making wine. claris tllhesl gave sole of the lew wille to his peasantt, and, as thece became intoxi cated, their friends. thiolkin that Iearous had poisoned thejm, killed him in their fury. icarius's daughter Erigone went in search of Icarius, and his body was found by means of his faithful dog lMoelo, who kept watch over the suStt whllcte the body was buried. Eligone in lher ehspair hanged herself on a tlee, and was, chaniged into the Constellation Virgo. lcarius was changed into the star Bootes, and the dog into the star Canis.
