AEOLUS (Aiolos) - Greek God King of the Winds

Shewring Greek epic C8th B. His island is a floating one; all round it there is a wall of bronze, unbreakable, and rock rises sheer above it. Twelve children of his live in the palace with him; six are daughters, six are sons in the prime of youth; moreover the king has given his daughters as wives to his sons.

These all hold a continual feast with their dear father and much-loved mother; countless dainties are there before them, and through the daytime the hall is rich with savoury smells and murmurous with the sound of music. At night they sleep, each with his own chaste wife, on inlaid bedsteads with coverlets over them.

To their city and noble palace we now came, and for a whole month Aiolos gave me hospitality and questioned me on all manner of things, Ilion [i. Troy] and the Argive ships and how the Akhaians Achaeans sailed for home.


I duly told him all he desired; then in my turn I asked his leave to depart and begged him to help me on my way. Nor was he unwilling; he set about speeding my return. He gave me a bag made from the hide of a full-grown ox of his, and in the bag he had penned up every Wind anemos that blows whatever its course might be; because Kronion Cronion [Zeus] had made him warden of all the Winds anemoito bid each of them rise or fall at his own pleasure.

He placed the bag in my own ship's hold, tied with a glittering silver cord so that through that fastening not even a breath could stray; to Zephyros the West Wind only he gave commission to blow for me, to carry onwards my ships and men.

Yet he was not after all to accomplish his design, because our own folly ruined us. For nine days and through nine nights we sailed on steadily; on the tenth day our own country began to heave in sight; we were near enough to see men tending their fires on shore.

It was then that beguiling sleep surprised me; I was tired out, because all this time I had kept my own hands on the steering-oar, never entrusting it to one of the crew, for I wished to speed our journey home. Meanwhile the crew began murmuring among themselves; they were sure I was taking home new presents of gold and silver from Aiolos.

One of them would say as he eyed his neighbour: In whatever city or land he comes to, this man wins everyone's friendship and regard. He is taking back a mass of fine things from the spoils of Troy, while we who have journeyed with him from the first to last are returning home all empty-handed.

And now come these latest gifts that Aiolos in his hospitality had indulged him with. Come, let us look without wasting time. What are these gifts? How much gold and silver is there inside the bag? They undid the bag, the Winds anemoi rushed out all together, and in a moment a tempest thuella had seized my crew and was driving them--now all in tears--back to the open sea and away from home.

I myself awoke, and wondered if now I should throw myself overboard and be drowned in ocean or if I should bear it all in silence and stay among the living.

I did bear it and did remain, but covered my face as I lay on deck.

Kukulkán, the Wind God

My own ship and the others with it were carried back by raging storm anemos thuella to the island of Aiolos nesos Aioloiosamid the groaning of all my company. There we set foot ashore and drew water, and without delay my crews and I took our meal by the rapid ships.

When we had had our portion of food and drink, I chose to come with me one man as my own attendant and one besides; then I sent up to the place of Aiolos, and found him feasting there with his wife and children. We went in and we sat down at the threshold by the doorposts, while the household asked in deep amazement: What malicious god has set upon you?
