You will run into Sirens, who will try to lure you with their angelic voices. You need to ignore them if you want to survive.
When Odysseus and his men return to Circe's island,Circe takes Odysseus aside to warn him of his next voyage
What can my men and I do to avoid these sirens?
If you want to survive this journey and make it back to Ithica, you must let your oarsmen tie you down. Once you hear the Siren's, you will beg to be untied, which in that case your men must hold you down and tie you up even more.
Wont my men be lured by the Sirens as well?
Of course they will. Thats what Sirens are best at, anyways. All men aboard your ship must plug their ears with soft beeswax until you arrive at your next destination
I think we can manage. Anything else I should know?
You will then sail past Scylla's cave. She has 12 legs and will take one man from every gullet, so be wise. No ship has ever passed her without tremendous loss
Thank you for all of the help
They then tied Odysseus up, as Circe had directed them to. Soon enough, they sailed past 2 sirens and they began to sing
At dawn, Odysseus and his men continue their journey. Odysseus tells his men about Circe's warnings of the sirens.
Odysseus and his men rolled the beeswax until it was soft and applied it into their ears.
If we keep you tied up then we will make it back to Ithica! The Sirens will dissapear soon!
