The idea of human bones wrenched from beasts' teeth, which Apuleius inserts amongst Pamphile's magical components (3,17,5: extorta dentibus ferarum trunca calvaria), likely derives from a literary tradition that can be found in Horace's Fifth Epode (5,23: et ossa ab ore rapta ieiunae canis) and Lucan's Bellum Civile (6,551-553: nec carpere membra / volt ferro manibusque suis, morsusque luporum / expectat siccis raptura e faucibus artus).
The mice were divided into four experimental groups and subjected to daily subcutaneous injections on the calvaria with phosphatebuffered saline (PBS, negative control group), LPS alone (100 [micro]g/day, positive control group), LPS (100 [micro]g/day) and exendin-4 (20 [micro]g/day), and exendin-4 alone (20 [micro]g/day) for 5 days.
MC3T3-E1 cells, which are osteoblasts derived from mouse calvaria [36-38], were seeded in 10 cm plastic cell culture plates (Becton Dickinson, Franklin Lakes, NJ, USA) at 1.5 x [10.sup.5] cells per plate in a-minimum essential medium (a-MEM; Invitrogen, Grand Island, NY, USA) containing 10% inactivated fetal bovine serum (FBS; Bio West, Miami, FL, USA) and 1% penicillin G-streptomycin sulfate (Invitrogen).

Fetuses suffer from oligohydramnios, leading to limb contractions and pulmonary hypoplasia, premature birth, growth retardation, and hypoplastic calvaria. Most of the affected infants require intensive care, including mechanical ventilation and peritoneal dialysis, because of lung hypoplasia and renal failure.
