CANTO XXIV & XXV - Thieves

The duo proceed to the seventh bolgia, where they encounter a horrifying scene of snakes swarming and tormenting the naked souls. Witnessing a sinner being bitten, the poets observe the soul transform into ash, only to regain its human form. A centaur named Cacus guards this bolgia. Three souls approach Dante, but one is soon attacked and fused with a six-legged snake, followed by another unsettling transformation. These hellish souls are doomed to relive their torments endlessly.
