A small Dragon with only two lower feet and no upper feet. It had instantaneous deadly touch and a poisonous body to those who touched it. It could be overcome by music which pacified the Dragon. However, the Aspis soon learnt from this trick and so it prevent hearing music by putting its ear on the ground and poking its tail in the other ear. In this state the Aspsi was harmless and so victims could escape.
