One ram he took, and fastened a man beneath it, and two other sheep he placed, one on either side. So he did with the six men, for but six were left out of the twelve who had come with him from the ship. There was one mighty ram, far larger than all the others, and under this Ulysses clung, grasping the heavy fleece tightly with both his hands. So they waited for the morning. And when the morning came, the rams rushed forth to the pasture. The giant sat in the door and felt the back of each as it went by but did not think to feel whatt might be underneath. Last of all went the great ram. And. the Cyclops knew him as he passed, and said :
"How is this, you who are the leader of the flock? You never lag behind. You have always been the first to run to the pastures and streams in the morning, and the first to come back to the fold when evening fell; and now you are last of all.

They hastened to their ship, not forgetting to drive before them a number of the fat sheep. Glad, indeed, to see their companions were those that had remained by the ship. Nor did they lament for those that had died, for Ulysses forbade all sounds of weeping, fearing lest the noise should betray to the giant where they were. Then they all climbed into the ship,
