Laërtes; the commonly reputed father of Ulysses, though some pretend that he was the son of Sisyphus. For, which his mother Anticlea was on the way to Laërtes, she was ravished by Sisyphus; of which rape Ulysses was born. Ajax reproaches him with this in the 13th book of the Metamorphoses, 26-31. See also Sophocles' Ajax 190 and Philoctetes 417. This version is not in Homer.
