Aristophanes, Wasps 1110 (of the chorus of wasps):
οἱ δ' ἐν Ὠιδείῳ δικάζουσ', ὧδε πρὸς τοῖς τειχίοις
ξυμβεβυσμένοι πυκνόν, νεύοντες εἰς τὴν γῆν, μόλις
ὥσπερ οἱ σκώληκες ἐν τοῖς κυττάροις κινούμενοι.
There we lay our heads together,
densely packed, and stooping low,
Like the grubs within their cells, with
movement tremulous and slow.

(Rogers' Loeb translation)
