STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

Even in Troy, which is very far from this land of Greece, men have heard of Ithaca."
This Ulysses was indeed glad to hear. Yet he did not wish to say who he was, but rather to pretend.
This pleased Athena, and she changed her shape, becoming like a woman, tall and fair, and said to Ulysses:
" I am Athena, daughter of Zeus, and I am ever ready to stand by thee and help thee. Now we will hide these gifts of thine. Thou must be silent, nor tell anyone who thQu art. Thou must endure many things before thou mayest come to thine own again."
But still Ulysses doubted, and wished to have the goddess tell him whether this was really his native land. And being glad to see him so careful, she scattered the mist that was about him.
Then Ulysses knew the land and kissed the ground. After this, with Athena guiding him, he hid away his possessions in a cave. Then the two laid plans together.
Athena said, "Think, Ulysses, how thou wilt lay hands
on these men, suitors of thy wife, who for three years have sat in thy house devouring thy substance. She hatll answered them craftily, making many promises, but always waiting for thy coming."
Then Ulysses said, "Truly I had perished but for thee.
But do thou help me now as of old in Troy, for with thee at my side I would fight with three hundred men."
Then said Athena, "Lo! I will see that no man shall know thee, for I will wither the fair flesh on thy limbs, and take the bright hair from thy head, and make thy eyes dull.
And the suitors shall take no account of thee; neither shall thy wife nor thy son know thee. But go to the swineherd, Eumaeus, where he dwells by the fountain, for he is faithful
