Postquam Ulixes in bello Troiano pugnavit, cum duodecim viris ad insulam Cyclopum navigavit. Cyclops Polyphemus in caverna habitabat. In caverna viri cibum invenerunt et eum edebant. Polyphemus pastor erat et oves in cavernam duxit. Graecos vidit et, "Heus!" clamavit.
"Cur in caverna mea estis? Cibum meum editis!" Cyclops paucos viros in manibus magnis habebat et dixit, "Nunc poenas dabitis!" Viros edit! Graeci valde timebant.
Tandem Polyphemus dormiebat. Dum stertebat, Graeci trabem acrem parabant. Cum ea oculum eius fixerunt. O infelix Polyphemus! "Quis estis? Cur mihi nocetis?" clamavit. “'Nemo' nomen mihi est!” Ulixes Cyclopi respondit.
Alii Cyclopes clamorem audiverunt et ad cavernam contenderunt. Unus ex eis Polyphemum rogavit, "Cur clamas?" "Nemo me nocet!" ei respondit. "Bene," Cyclops dixit. Tum Cyclopes adsuas cavernas revenerunt.
