Visual aids: Return From Troy, Episode 7

  • Odysseus and the Sirens
    Based on an Attic stamnos (pot), late 6th-early 5th century BC, British Museum, London
    The three sirens seek to lure Odysseus and his companions to their death with their melodic voices. However, Odysseus has had himself securely bound to the mast of his ship while his companions row on fast with their ears stopped with bees-wax, thus unable to hear the sirens’ song.
