STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

Then Athena changed him into the shape of a beggar.
She caused his skin to wither, and his hair to fall off, and his eyes to grow dim; and she put on him filthy rags, with a great stag's hide about his shoulders, and in his hand a staff, and a bag on his shoulder, fastened by a rope.
Then she departed, and Ulysses went to the house of Eumaeus, the swineherd. A great courtyard there was, and twelve sties for the swine, and four watchdogs, big as wild beasts, for such did the swineherd breed. He himself was shaping sandals, and of his men three were with the swine in the fields, and one was driving a fat beast to the city, to be meat for the suitors. But when Ulysses came near, the dogs ran upon him, and he dropped his staff and sat down, and would have suffered harm, even on his own threshold, but the swineherd ran forth and drove away the dogs, and brought the old man in, and gave him a seat of brushwood, with a great goatskin over it.
And Ulysses said, "May Zeus and the other gods repay you for this kindness."
Then the two talked of matters in Ithaca, and Eumaeus told how the suitors of the Queen were devouring the substance of Ulysses. Then the beggar asked him about the King, saying that he had himself traveled far, and he might perhaps know him.
But Eumaeus said, "Nay, old man, thus do all wayfarers talk; yet we hear, no truth from them. Not a beggar comes ao to this island but our Queen must see him, and ask him many things, weeping the while. And you, I doubt not, for a cloak or a tunic would tell a wondrous tale. But Ulysses
