STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

Then Penelope bade her servants make ready for the stranger a bed of soft mats and blankets, and also that one of them should bathe him. But the mats and blankets he would not have, saying that he would sleep as before, and for the bathing, he wished only that some old woman, wise and prudent, should do this. Wherefore the Queen bade Eurycleia, the keeper of the house, to bathe the stranger. She also told her that this man had been the comrade of her lord, and indeed was marvelously like him in feet and hands.
Eurycleia was very willing to obey the order, out of love for her master. When she had prepared the bath for his feet, Ulysses sat by the fire, but as far in the shadow as possible, for fear the old woman should see a great scar that was upon his leg, and know him by it.
Now he had got the scar in this manner: when a child while visiting his grandfather, Ulysses went hunting on Mount Parnassus. And one day he came in the heart of a wood upon a place where lay a great wild boar, and the beast, being stirred by the noise, rose up, and Ulysses charged him with his spear. But before he could slay the beast, it ripped a great wound just above his knee.
By this scar, then, the old nurse knew that it was Ulysses himself, and said, "0 Ulysses, O my child, to think that I knew you not!"
She looked toward the Queen, intending to tell her the news. But Ulysses said to her, "Eurycleia, do you wish to kill me? I have returned after twenty years; but none must know till I shall be ready to take vengeance."
And the old woman held her peace. After this Penelope talked with him again, telling him her dream : that she had seen a flock of geese in her palace, and that an eagle had slain them, and when she mourned for the geese, lo! a voice
