Ulysses's men also betray him on the Ciconians island. Eurylochus, in his greed, convinces Ulysses to attack a defenseless city, resulting in the deaths of 18 of the men.


In this section of the text, Ulysses is given a fair west wind to take him steadily home. Aeolus, Keeper of the Winds, also gives him a bag with the east, north, and south winds, just in case Ulysses needs it. However, Ulysses men show their greedy side and stab open the bag of winds, thinking that it is gold. This results in Ulysses and his men being blown away from Ithaca and having to face the dangers of their journey.


For example, on page 36 of The Adventures of Ulysses, one of Ulysses' men says, "Yes, a fortune that should belong to all of us by rights. We shared the danger and should share the loot." As a result of this greed for treasure, Ulysses' men stab open the bag releasing the winds and sending Ulysses and his crew way off their journey home.


Greed plays a major role in all of the acts of betrayal against Ulysses so far. It is this greed that clouds the judgment of Ulysses' loyal men.
