Throwing someone under the bus: circa 900

If through a servant misfortune befall thee, Spare not to save thine own
life at his cost. Servants in plenty thou'lt find to replace him, Life for life never, once
it is lost.
--From The Book of the Thousand Nights and One Night--

It was what servants were for. In some circles today, this is wisdom.
