Greek fabulous creature

Also known as POLYPHEMOS, CYCLOPS

The anti-social CYCLOPES who gave all his brethren a bad name.

Imprisoning Greek heroes like ODYSSEUS in a cave and attempting to eat them can only lead to unpopularity.

Despite his strength and generally monstrous aspect, POLYPHEMUS was not entirely clever; ODYSSEUS made a fool of him with a very silly trick and blinded him for good.
