STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

companions of the Sirens, and how they should bind him. Ulysses made cakes of wax, kneading them in the hot sun, and put them into the ears of his companions. They bound him upright to the mast and so rowed on. Then the Sirens sang a wondrous song, and Ulysses, charmed by the melody, begged that they would free him, nodding his head, for their ears were stopped; but they plied their oars the faster and tightened the ropes around him. After the island was passed, the men took the wax from their ears and loosed the bonds from Ulysses.
After this they saw smoke and surf, and heard a mighty roar, and their oars dropped out of their hands for fear; but Ulysses bade them be of good heart and reminded them that by his counsel they had escaped other dangers in past time.
He commanded the men to row with all their might. But of Scylla he said nothing, fearing that they would lose heart and cease rowing altogether. Then he armed himself, and stood in the prow waiting till Scylla should appear.
On the other side Charybdis was sucking in the water with a horrible noise, and with eddies so deep that a, man might see the sand at the bottom. But while they looked trembling at this, Scylla caught six of the men from the ship, and Ulysses heard them call him by his name as the monster carried them away. Never, he said in after days; did he see with his eyes so pitiful a sight.
After this they came to the land where fed the oxen of the Sun. Ulysses said, "Let us pass by this island, for there we shall find the greatest evil that we have yet suffered."
But the men were so weary of the sea that they begged him to land if only for a day.
Then spoke Ulysses, "You force me to yield, being many
against one. Yet promise me that you will not take any of the oxen; for if you do, great trouble will come to us."
