I ”Cranial Trauma in Ancient Greece: From Homer to Classical Authors”, publicerad i Journal of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery, rapporteras bl.a. om hur en stor grekisk poet dog:

The death of the father of tragedy, Aeschylos (524–455 B.C.) is a very unusual case of accidental head trauma. At the age of seventy Aeschylos was mortally injured by a turtle thrown by an eagle on his head (Aelian, 1971).
