Rustam's fourth labour: he kills the witch
Public Notes
Rustam dismounts by a stream and is amazed to find a meal, wine and a lute on the ground. He does not realise that he has stumbled upon a witches' meal. He picks up the lute and plays it. One of the witches reappears, disguised as a beautiful maiden, but when Rustam invokes the name of God she resumes her hideous aspect. Rustam lassos her and cuts her in half.
