Astrabacus was a Dung beetle owned by Hercules who was claimed to be one of the fastest beetles around. The beetle won a race for Hercules and so his master made him a small house and fed him regularly with his favourite food. Pythagoras was thought to have stepped on Astrabacus, but it was just a spider.
Later, as they returned to race again, the beetle didn't move at all, and Hercules claimed that it wasn't his beetle and he believed that they had left the beetle behind in the Mountain farmstead. (White Lies)
