[148] Suspecto ducit Ulysse genus. Ulysses was hated by Neptune, some think on account of Palamedes his grandson, whom that hero circumvented before Troy; others for his son Polyphemus, whose eye was thrust out by Ulysses in Sicily. Neptune, in revenge, kept him wandering ten years from his native country, exposed in the mean time to multiplied dangers from storms and shipwrecks.
