The cliffs of Sciron, which can still be seen today on the coast road between Athens and Corinth. Photo by Joel Skidmore.

Sciron (SKY-ron). Bandit who made travelers stop to wash his feet, then kicked them over a cliff while they were doing so. When they fell into the sea below, they were devoured by a man-eating turtle. Theseus turned the tables on Sciron.
