What excuse does Ulysses come up with for Telemachus to use in order to keep the weapons from the suitors?
Select ALL that apply.
The weapons should be gifted to the beggar to make up for treating him poorly and to prevent the gods' vengeance.
The weapons should be taken down and cleaned so Telemachus can gift them to the suitors in gratitude.
The weapons should be sent to Menelaus because of his generosity towards Telemachus.
The weapons should be cleaned because they have gotten dirty from hanging up in a smoky room.
Keeping the weapons away will prevent the suitors from embarrassing and/or hurting themselves from fighting each other in their wine-induced state.
