Aeschylus

“Valerius Maximus wrote that he [Aeschylus] was killed outside the city by a tortoise dropped by an eagle which had mistaken his head for a rock suitable for shattering the shell of the reptile. Pliny, in his Naturalis Histori√¶, adds that Aeschylus had been staying outdoors to avoid a prophecy that he would be killed by a falling object.”

This event was cited in N.D. Wilson’s quite enjoyable Notes From The Tilt-A-Whirl: Wide-Eyed Wonder in God’s Spoken World.
