Odysseus concludes his story.
King Alkinoos makes a sacrifice to Zeus, prepares gifts for Odysseus, and organizes a crew to take him home to Ithaka.
Poseidon, angry that the Phaiakians helped Odysseus, asks for Zeus’s permission to destroy the cutter and “heave a mass of mountains in a ring around the city”
”You must eat something, drink some wine,
and tell me where you are from and the hard
times you have seen” (Od.14.54-55).
