Amphimedon in The Odyssey

By Homer

Amphimedon

In the Underworld, he tells the story of the slaughter to Achilleus and Agamemnon. It's clear from his version that the suitors are none-too-repentant of their ways: he accuses Penelope of "planning our death and black destruction/ with this other stratagem of her heart's devising" (24.127-28).
