There was once a certain Woman who was the Wife of Dodo-for Dodo had emerged from the forest and had become a Husband-[and she wanted a human victim]. So she came to the town bringing a small basket with a lid to it, and she placed it on the brink of a dye-pit (1) where the People were dyeing. And when she had placed it there, she said "He who can knock over that basket may have me for his Wife"(2).
