Dante comes across two sinners close together with one chewing on the back of the other's head

The man chewing on another man's head, Count Ugolino, explains his story
After being exiled from Pisa, Ugolino is invited back by Archbishop Ruggieri only to be betrayed by him and locked in a tower and is left for dead with his 4 sons
After all of his sons die in the tower, the now blind Ugolino eats his dead sons
Dante and Virgil move on to the third ring, Ptolomea, which consists of people who sinned against their guests
Sinners are lying flat on the ice and it is so old their tears freeze immediately

“ That, by effect of
his malicious thoughts /
Trusting in him I was
made prisoner, / and after
put to death; I need not say...”

and I alive remained not; / Think for thyself now, hast thou aught of wit, / What I became, being of both deprived...”

help this verse of mine, /
Who helped Amphion
in enclosing Thebes…”

for unto thy shame I will report of thee veracious new”
