This storyboard does not have a description.
"So all rowed on, until the Sirens dropped under the sea rim, and their singing dwindled away (Homer 129-131)."
"...Steer for that headline; watch the drift, or we fetch up the smother, and you drown us (Homer 157-159)."
"But I sent them on towards the Scylla. I told them nothing, as they could do nothing (Homer 161-162)."
Odysseus and his men continued their journey after they passed the Sirens. They headed towards the Charybdis and Scylla next.
"And all this time, in travail, sobbing, gaining on the current, we rowed into the strait -- Scylla to port... (Homer 172-174)"
Odysseus and his men either have to go past the Charaybdis or the Scylla. In the end, they choose the Scylla.
"Then Scylla made her strike, whisking six of my best men from the ship. I happened to glance aft at ship and oarsmen and caught sight of their arms and legs, dangling high overhead (Homer 188-191)."
Odysseus and his men head strait for the Scylla, and Odysseus doesn't tell his crew what will happen because they will all get scared.
"We rowed on. The Rocks were now behind; Charaybdis, too, and Scylla dropped astern.... (Homer203-205)."
Odysseus and his men see the Scylla perched up above the cliff. They are waiting for what is going to happen next.
Odysseus and his men see the Scylla and are terrified. Unfortunately, in order to pass, the Scylla must kill 6 of Odysseus' men.
Odysseus and the rest of his men continue their journey, still scarred about what just happened to their friends.
