STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

To her, as she slept, Athena went, taking the shape of Nausicaa's friend, and said:
" Why hath thy mother so idle a daughter, Nausicaa? Lo! thy garments lie unwashed, and thy wedding must be near, seeing that many nobles in the land are thy suitors. Ask thy father to give thee the wagon with the mules, for the places where we must wash are far from the city, and I will go with thee."

You should always have clean robes when you go to the council, and there are my five brothers also, who love to have newly-washed garments at the dance."

But when they had nearly ended their play, the princess, throwing the ball to one of her maidens, threw it so far that it fell into the river. Then they all cried aloud,
