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.

early struggles teaching myself ancient Greek

Since I retired, I've begun trying to learn ancient Greek. A local faculty member recommended Mastronarde's Introduction to Attic Greek, which has an associated web site.
