Here's a hint: if you happen to shipwreck on the island of Aeaea, and an intoxicatingly beautiful woman offers you some refreshment, don't take the bait. The chances are very high that you've just run into Circe, the immortal sea witch. She may seem gracious at first, but as soon as she's done wining and dining her guests, she whips out her magic wand and transforms them into animals. A true pet lover, Circe fills her palace with her formerly human pals, spending most of her days lounging around with her strangely docile lions, panthers, and pigs. Circe is most famous for her appearance in Homer's Odyssey where she transforms Odysseus' men into swine. In the end, though, Odysseus gets friendly with Circe (like really friendly), and the sea witch transforms his men back, gives them directions to the Underworld, and sends them on their way. Hey, maybe she's not so bad after all. Eh…

According to some, I had Ardeas, Latinus, and Telegonus with Odysseus.
