Our seventh stop is Circe's Island, or Athena. Athena is the capitol of Greece. Athena is in the middle of Greece. The population is 3.7 million. The elevation is 50,942 m. The industry is iron and steel. Athens is the most populated place in Greece. In Athens they have the Acropolis, a building high up on a mountain. In the Acropolis, their is a statue of Athena, goddess of wisdom and battle strategies. They have a statue of Athena because Athenians worship Athena because Athena won the City's name contest by making a olive tree. In Odysseus's journey, Odysseus sends his men out to look for food on a Island nearby. Little does he know that his men have been turned into swine because they got lured in by Circe's beauty, and Circe fed them a magic potion and they turned into swine. When Odysseus found this out, he rushed to go to get them. On the way their Hermes, god of the messengers, stopped by to give Odysseus a magical herb called Moly. Moly would keep him from turning into a swine. When Odysseus ate at Circe's house, he demanded for her to turn the swine back to men. She said she would, but Odysseus didn't leave because he fell in love with Circe. After several years, when Odysseus is about to leave Circe tells Odysseus he needs to find the blind prophet Teiresias. Well, Athens is a great place to visit. Don't forget to stop by the Acropolis. Have fun!
