Cyclops and Poseidon

In this delightful satire by Lucian, the cyclops Polyphemus runs to tell his father Poseidon how Odysseus blinded him while he slept, and Poseidon promises to take vengeance on the wily Greek.

Leon and Michael's performance brings out Lucian's brilliant wit in a colorful dramatic interpretation.

The edition used in this recording may be found on Perseus.
