Ulysses (the Latin form of the Greek Odysseus) was the name of a Greek hero, king of the Isle of Ithaca, who fought with great prowess at the siege of Troy. His adventures after leaving Troy are related in Homer's immortal Odyssey. The Lotus-eating of the Lotophagi, the killing Polyphemus, the enchantment by Circe, the wreck off the Isle of Ogygia, and the final return to his faithful wife Penelope, are all described.
