Cyclops vs. Odysseus
Odysseus and his men cross the mainland. They come across this cave full of sheep and crates of cheese and milk. As greedy the men are, they stayed and ate some of the food.
The Cyclops returns to the cave, Polyphemus, son of Poseidon. He is friendly at first but then turns hostile. Polyphemus broodily killed and devoured two of Odysseus's men but not before the Cyclops puts a bolder in front of the passage way in or out.,
After they escape, Odysseus and his remaining men make it to their ship. Getting on Odysseus commands his men to sail away.
Odysseus wants to take credit for what just happened. He screams back and tells the Cyclops his true identity and where he's from. The Cyclops offers friendship for the person who has defeated him. Odysseus refuses and pushes the Cyclops over the edge by insulting him
Then, the Cyclops gets angry and throws some of a mountain close to the ships, pushing them back to shore. They sail again and Odysseus being self-conceded yells back and teases the cyclops again. This time pushing him over the edge.
