Cadmus,Prince of Tyre son of Agenor was ordered to look for his lost sister.His punishment was exile if he failed to find her .Cadmus"is there any land in which we can settle down?"The Oracle of phoebus in a desert place you will meet a cow one that had never had a yoke on her neck or down a hook plough. Follow her as she goes and in the place where she first lies down on the grass,there you must find your city and you must call the place Boeotia or Cowland. Cadmus follows the cow to Panope
Cadmus made a sacrifice to Jupiter and ordered his men to find a spring for the sacrifice.His men came upon a cave with a large serpent that had three tongues and three rows of teeth.His men splash into the water and the blue serpent seized upon Cadmus' men ;some were killed with its teeth,some were crushed and some by deadly poison.
Cadmus sets out to look for his men carring a shield spare and javelin.Cadmus sees the dead bodies of his men and the serpent licking their wounds.He vows"I shall either avenge your death or share in it".
He throws a huge stone at the serpent bit it remainded without a wound. Cadmus struck the middle of the serpent back with his javelin going right down into the flesh.The serpent bit at the shaft of the javelin hugging violently and manage to tear it out;but the point was still stuck in its backbone.The angry serpent raised itself erect and high as a tree and battered the trees that stood in its way.Cadmus steeped backjabbing his spare at the open jaws of the serpent.The beast bit uselessly on the hard iron fixing its teeth in to the point of the spare soon blood began to fall from the roofs of its mouth onto the green grass.Finally Cadmus fixed the spare in the beasts' throat sending it right through both the neck and the tree.The serpent died in agony
Cadmus heard a voice.
"Son of Agenor,why are you looking a this dead serpent?A time will come when you will be turned into a serpent and people will be looknig at you." Cadmus was terrified.
Pallas,his patron goddes glides through the air. Pallas says "plough up the land and sow the dragons teeth in it,and they would grow up to be your people.
