STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

least would the Greeks have buried me; but now I shall perish miserably."
As he spoke, a great wave struck the raft and threw him into the sea.
Then for two days and two nights he swam, Athena helping him, for otherwise he would have perished. But on the third day there was a calm, and he saw from the top of a great wave the land, close at hand. But when he came near, he heard the waves breaking along the shore, for there was no harbor there, but only cliffs and rugged rocks.
While he wondered what he should do, a great wave bore him to the shore. Then all his bones would have been broken, and he would have perished; but Athena put it in his heart to swim along the shore until he came to the mouth of a river, where there were no rocks. When he landed, he was much wearied. His knees bent under him, his hands dropped at his sides, and the salt water ran out of his mouth and nostrils. Breathless was he and speechless; but when he came to himself, he looked about him to see what manner of land he had reached.
Then he dropped down on the rushes by the bank of the river and kissed the earth. Close to the river there was a wood. Here he found two olive bushes so closely grown together that neither sun nor rain could pierce through. Under these he crept and covered himself with leaves. Athena sent down upon his eyelids deep sleep, and he rested after his toil.

V. HOW THE PHAEACIANS RECEIVED ULYSSES
