  Outschool would like you to know that in these stories Theseus commits and is witness to various violent acts.  The stories begin with a bandit who clubs people to death and in turn is clubbed to death by his own club by Theseus.  The stories conclude with a villainous smith named Procrustes who had two beds; a short bed he would tie victims to and lop off the excess length, and a long bed he would stretch people to fit.  Apollodorus' 'Library' basically says that he used a giant hammer to flatten guests like a pancake on a massive bed of iron (Epitome. 1.4.)
  The progeny of Sinis is not included nor will it be mentioned.
