Voltore reenters the scene and insults Mosca, calling him a "flesh-fly." Volpone offers to beat up Mosca, claiming that "flesh-fly" like Mosca should never have been able to outsmart an educated lawyer like Voltore. Voltore begs Volpone just to leave him alone.
This scene reiterates the imagery of Mosca as a fly besting more powerful animals. Volpone continues unabated in his insatiable goading of the legacy-hunters, reminding the audience how he has abandoned all semblance of self-control.
