Odysseus Commends Circe

Case Description: She may have turned his men into swine when Odysseus and his peeps first arrived on Aeaea, but Circe ended up being super helpful when Odysseus was ready to continue his voyage home to Ithaca. The witchy goddess gave the hero directions to the Underworld, which allowed him to consult the ghost of the famous seer Tiresias. She also told Odysseus how to safely make it through the strait that passed between Scylla and Charybdis. Full details can be found in Homer's Odyssey.
