STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

aloud to the suitors, "Lo, now is the trial ended at last. Let me try at yet another mark."
And he aimed his arrow at Antinous. The man was just raising a cup to his lips, thinking not of death-for who would have thought that any man, though mightiest of mortals, would venture on such a deed, being one among many?
And all the suitors, when they saw Antinous fall, leaped from their seats; but when they looked, there was neither spear nor shield upon the wall. They knew not whether it was by chance or of set purpose that the stranger had smit
ten him. But Ulysses then declared who he was, saying :
" Dogs, you thought that I should never come back. Therefore have you devoured my house, and made suit to my wife while I yet lived, and feared not the gods nor regarded men. Therefore a sudden destruction is come upon you all."
Then, when all the others trembled for fear, Eurymachus said, "If you are indeed Ulysses of Ithaca, you have said well. Foul wrong has been done to you in the house and in the field. But lo ! here lies he who was the mover of it all-Antinous. NOr was it so much this marriage that he sought, as to be king of this land, having destroyed your house. But-we will pay you back for all that we have devoured, even twenty times as much."
But Ulysses said, "Speak not of paying back. My hands shall not cease from slaying till I have taken vengeance on you all."
And all the while Athena waved her flaming shield from above, and the suitors fell as birds are scattered and torn so by eagles.
But Ulysses spared the minstrel, for he had sung among the suitors in the hall, by force, and not of his free will; he spared also the herald.
