Character Analysis

Sometimes spelled Eurylochus. One of the Ithakans traveling with Odysseus on the way back from Troy. He is a cautious man, refusing to enter Circe’s hall even when accompanied by armed men. He’s also the brilliant mind who convinces everyone to stay a night at Thrinakia – land of Helios’s cattle – which we all know results in the death of…everyone. Except Odysseus.
