Odysseus and his men are tempted by many things. In the land of the Lotus Eaters, for example, they were tempted by the idea that they could stay in that land forever and never return home. In the land of Polyphemus, they were tempted by his wine and cheese. In the land of Circe, they were tempted by the wine she offered only to find they were turned into swine. Odysseus was tempted separately by Calypso when she kept him on her island for 7 years. The men also slaughtered the sacred cattle of Helios and killed and ate some of the provisions on the shores of the Laestrygons.
