"Supine upon the ground some folk were lying; And some were sitting all drawn up together, And others went about continually"

(Canto 14, lines 22-24)

Here are described three types of sinners: the "supine" are the violent against God; the "sitting" are those violent to "art", that is, usurers; and those who "went about" are those violent to "nature", that is, homosexuals.
