Odysseus travels to the underworld to speak with Teiresias about his future. Teiresias tells Odysseus that he has a treacherous journey ahead. He says that Odysseus will be blown off course and land on the island of Thrinakia, where the sun god Helios resides with his sacred cattle. Teiresias warns Odysseus that if his men slaughter the cattle of Helios, they will all die. When Odysseus and his men reach the cattle, one of his men kills the cattle for food. Outraged, Helios creates a storm while Odysseus and his men are sailing back to Ithaca and all his men drown. Odysseus is the only survivor.
