Odysseus Then bring out cheese or lamb. Silenus I will do just that and pay little heed to my master. I would like to drink down a single cup of this wine, giving all the Cyclopes' flocks in exchange for it, and then to leap from the Leucadian cliffLeucas, a small island in the Ionian sea off the west coast of Greece, has chalk cliffs rising sharply from the sea. The leap from this cliff into the sea is used in Anacreon, fr. 376 PMG, as an image of the loss of self-control encountered when one is ‘drunk with love.’ Sappho is said to have leapt from the cliff for the love of Phaon. into the brine, good and drunk with my eyebrows cast down.
