"Elpenor? How did you get here? You were with us yesterday!"
Captain it was my ill luck that brought me here more swiftly than your black ship
i had drunk too much and gone to sleep on Circes roof in the fresh night air i rose to sounds missed the ladder and fell headlong snapping my neck
i promised him and his spirit faded back into the darkness but came someone i knew well Antlicleia my own beloved mother who still lived when i sailed for troy
you come to me for prophecy and advice. You want o know how to get home to ithaca.
"Yes great stage. Tell me what you see. How can i complete the journey."
you can reach home by disciplining your men and yourself. heed my words. you must not touch the cattle of Helios the sun god who sees all! if yo leave those scared beast unharmed your ship and all your crew will get there safely.
But if you allow your men to kill any of Helios cattle then your ship and crew will be destroyed and you will suffer more long years at sea. You'll return at last but under a strange sail unrecognized at home and your palace will be overrun by enemies suitors who seek to eat up your flocks and claim your wife.
