[39] However others say that she met her end at the hands of Ulysses himself on account of Amphinomus,1 for they allege that she was seduced by him.

1 Amphinomus was one of the suitors of Penelope; his words pleased her more than those of the other suitors, because he had a good understanding. See Hom. Od. 16.394-398. He was afterwards killed by Telemachus (Hom. Od. 12. 89ff.). The suspicion that Penelope was unfaithful to her husband has no support in Homer.
