Description: Three thieves have just murdered a stranger for his gold. The corpse lies out in the open. The Young Novice repents, but the Leader and his Companion threaten him. The Young Novice remains apart from them while they divide the gold – into two piles! When he brings them some wine to drink, they stab him. But the Young Novice had plans of his own: the wine was poisoned, and the murderers themselves were murdered.
