Bantam Lyons

Character Analysis

Lyons also appears as a character in "Ivy Day in the Committee Room" in Joyce's Dubliners. Here, he appears briefly in "Lotus-Eaters." Bloom tries to give him a 'throwaway' paper that he has been handed, and Lyons mistakes it for a tip in the Gold Cup race. As it turns out, Bloom's false tip picked the winner and Lyons makes a killing, telling everyone around that Bloom told him.
