We went to the hall of Circe, with her wolves and lions watching Circe. We could hear her sing in her house then we came in the house with all her animals. We then feasted and Eurylochus came to tell us that our men were turned into animals. I encountered with Hermes and he gave me a plant to resist Circe's power. Circe then knew she was not powerful enough to handle me and let my men go. I stayed with her and my men for seasons of feasting, Circe told me that I must go see Teiresias at the land of the dead.
I had to speak with Teiresias, and I sacrificed my best black lamb for the dead. I could hear the dead all around me and I told my men to kill all the sheep. I used my sword to keep them in the pit. The dark prince of Thebes asked why I came to the land of the dead and told me there were to be suffering ahead. The dark prince said that I will be the last of my crew to survive, to come home to trouble. Then there would be men eating our livestock.
Ahead on my journey came sirens that sang songs to kill men. You must not listen, for dead men all around them.
We then had to pass Scylla and no ship has ever passed her. I didn't tell my men about Circe's prophecy of only me surviving. We were to shun the sirens and my men tied me up. I carried wax with me while sailing, I put it in their ears. I heard the lovely singing of the sirens and to get my crew to untie me. We sailed away and removed the beeswax from our ears. The Scylla killed six of my best men and tried to grab me. We managed to row on.
My men insisted on landing on Thrinakia, the island of the sun god, We dragged the ship into a sea cave. I told my men that we were not to touch the cattle on the island and that we were to eat food from the ship. We eventually ran out of food and we were forced to look for food. I prayed to the gods and then Eurylochus sacrificed the best of the cattle for us so we wouldn't starve. Helios became angered and told Father Zeus to punish my men for killing his kine. Zeus struck lightning on my ship to be destroyed, for I was the only survivor. I lived to make it to Calypso's island.
