Lack of Restraint

ODYSSY-SULGGT

Teiresias tells Ulysses

Still, after much suffering you may get home if you can restrain yourself and your companions when your ship reaches the Thrinacian island, where you will find the sheep and cattle belonging to the sun, who sees and gives ear to everything. If you leave these flocks unharmed and think of nothing but of getting home, you may yet after much hardship reach Ithaca; but if you harm them, then I forewarn you of the destruction both of your ship and of your men.

The reader may assume that "restraint" will be hard for Ulysses and his men because of all of the following events EXCEPT

A

Cyclops

B

Cicons

C

Circe

D

Aeolus

E

Nausicaa
