STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

the hall, as they had planned to do. And while they did so, Telemachus said, "See, my father, this marvelous brightness on the pillars and the ceiling. Surely some god is with us."
Ulysses made reply, "I, too, have seen it, but let us be silent. And now go to your chamber and sleep, and leave me here, for I have something to say to your mother and her maidens."
When the Queen and her maidens came into the hallfor it was the work of the maidens to clean it and make it ready for the morrow-Penelope asked him of his family and of his country. At first he did not answer, fearing, he said, to trouble her with the story of his sufferings. But after she had told him what she herself had suffered, her husband being lost and the suitors troubling her continually, he made up a story to satisfy her. For he told her that he was a man of Crete and had befriended Ulysses, when he was sailing to Troy.
When the Queen, trying to find out whether he spoke the truth, asked him about Ulysses-what kind of man he was, and what clothing he wore-he answered her rightly, saying, "I remember that he had a mantle, twofold, woolen, of sea-purple, clasped with a brooch of gold, on which was a dog that held a fawn by the throat; marvelously wrought they were, so hard held the one, so strove the
other to be free. He also had a tunic, white and smooth, which the women much admired. But whether someone had given him these things, I do not know, for indeed many gave him gifts. I, too, gave him a sword and a tunic."
Penelope, knowing these things to be true, wept aloud, crying because she feared she should see her husband no more. But the beggar comforted her, saying that although Ulysses had lost his ships and his comrades, nevertheless he would speedily return.
