After many adventures for Odysseus, one of the victorious Greek leaders and known for his cleverness, and his men, they came to an island. Unbeknownst for them, the island was inhabited by the Cyclops people, a race of giants with only one eye in the middle of their forehead. Cyclopes were lawless, without culture, and ate humans when available.
Odysseus and his men beached there, and Odysseus told the crew to stand by and keep watch over the ship; and for him he took his 12 best figthers and went ahead.
Odysseus and his men entered the cave , and it was full of cheese and milk and there was groups of lambs that Cyclops separated them.
They helped themselves to the food and drink they found there ,and fell asleep.
After a time, a Cyclops, whose name was Polyphemus, returned to the cave. Leading his flock of giant sheep into the cave, he rolled a huge stone against the mouth of the cave to close the entrance.
When Cyclops entered the cave,Odysseus and his men scattered to the far wall to hide from Cyclops, but after a while when Cyclops finished milking the ewes, Cyclops found Odysseus and his men.
