STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

of the yard, and Ulysses came behind them and said, "What would you do if Ulysses were to come back to his home? Would you fight for him, or for the suitors?"
And both said that they would fight for Ulysses.
Then Ulysses said, "Look at me, for I am Ulysses, son of Laertes, who have come back in the twentieth year, and you, I know, are glad at heart that I have come. If you will help me as brave men today, you shall have wives, and houses near to my own. And you shall be brothers and comrades to Telemachus. And for a sign, behold this scar, which the wild boar made when I hunted on Parnassus."
Then they wept for joy and kissed Ulysses, and he also kissed them. And he told Eumaeus to bring the bow to him when the suitors had tried their skill with it; also that he should bid the women keep within doors, nor stir out if they should hear the noise of battle. He bade the herdsman lock the doors of the hall and fasten them with a rope.
After this he came back to the hall, and Eurymachus had the bow in his hands, and sought to warm it at the fire.
Then he tried to bend it, but could not. And he groaned aloud, saying, "Woe is me! not for the loss of this marriage only, for there are other women to be wooed in Greece, but that we are so much weaker than the great Ulysses. This is indeed a shame to tell."
Then said Antinous, "Not so; today is a holy day of the archer god; therefore we could not bend the bow. But tomorrow let us try once more, after due sacrifice to Apollo."
This saying pleased them all; but Ulysses said, "Let me try this bow, for I should like to know whether I have such strength as I had in former days."
At this all the suitors were angry, and chiefly Antinous, but Penelope said that it should be so, and promised the man great gifts if he could bend this bow.
