r ship with vines and ivy is a theme of vase-painting and of the seventh Homeric Hymn. against you to have you sold as a slave to a far country, I learned of it and took ship with my sons to find you. Taking my stand right at the stern, I myself steered the double-oared ship, and my sons, sitting at the oars, made the grey sea whiten with their rowing as they searched for you, lord. And as we were rounding Cape Malea, an east wind blew down on the ship and cast us to land near this crag of Aetna, where Neptune's one-eyed sons, the man-slaying Cyclopes, dwell in their remote caves. One of these caught us and keeps us as slaves in his house: the master we serve is called Polyphemus. And instead of our bacchic revels we now herd the flocks of this godless Cyclops. And so my sons, being young, are shepherding the young sheep on the distant slopes, while my orders are to remain behind, fill the watering-troughs, and sweep this house, assisting this godless Cyclops at his unholy meals.

for your jaws. It was we who kept your father safe in the possession of his temple-seats in every corner of Greece: the harbor of sacred Taenarum and the recesses of Cape Malea remain inviolate, safe is the rock of Sunium rich in silver, sacred to the goddess Athena, safe are Geraestus' refuges. We have avoided the great disgrace of losses to the Trojans.This sentence gives approximate sense only.

Chorus addressing a ewe Unloose your swollen udders. Take to your teats the young lambs you left behind inside the cave. The bleating little ones, who have slept all day, are missing you. When will you leave the grassy haunts of Aetna behind and enter your vast pen?

!Exit the Cyclops, with the reluctant Silenus, into the cave. Odysseus Come, Dionysus' children, noble offspring, the man's within and soon, relaxed in sleep, he'll belch his meat out from his shameless maw. Inside the hall the fire-brand is ready, sending forth smoke, and there is nothing left to do but to burn out the Cyclops' eye. But now you must show your manhood. Chorus-Leader Our hearts shall be like rock or adamant! But go into the house before my father suffers some awful disaster. From this quarter all is ready for you. Odysseus Hephaestus, lord of Aetna, burn out the bright eye of this pest, your neighbor, and be quit of him for good! And you, Sleep, child of black Night, come with undiluted force against this god-detested beast! After his glorious deeds at Troy do not let Odysseus, himself and his men, die at the hands of a man who heeds not gods or men! Otherwise, we will have to regard Chance as God and the gods as weaker than Chance.Exit Odysseus into the cave.

Chorus Hurrah, hurrah! Thrust bravely, hurry, burn out the eyebrow of the guest-eating monster. Burn, incinerate the herdsman of Aetna. Whirl and pull, whirl and pull, lest in pain he do you some desperate harm.
