The letter Sigma

Hola, I did a search on this topic, and couldn't find anything in the forum, so I wanted to ask. What is the deal with the letter sigma, and it's alternate appearance (in the shape of a crescent moon)? I was familiar with the way sigma was written, but found a textbook that teaches it only in the other form, which is mightily difficult to digest when reading the book. Anyways, any help on this ...

Why is this?

I started all over with ancient Greek, motivated and all, and notice that my attention dwindles when I have to get into the -μι verbs, the medium and passive.

That's exactly where my interest faded in high school! Why is that? Is it over-complication, saturation? It just seems so typical that I waver at just the same point as (ehum) 25 years ago.

Did anybody else experience the same? Or is it just silly me?

OT: Circe & Odyseuss

Quick Question not language related: I could have sworn I remember one of odyseuss's men chose to stay on the island with circe and remain a swine. I can't find it anywhere. (Although I do have a terrible memory - maybe I remember seeing it in a comic book somehwere instead of reading it in the Oddysey.)

Anyway, did this happen? - if so a name of who stayed or a reference would be a ...

quantitative metathesis

I wish to know what the purpose of quantitative metathesis. It seems to me a superfluous complication of the third declension.
