The Iliad describes the events of the ten-year siege of the city of Troy, by a coalition of Greek states. The story unfolds during a quarrel between King Agamemnon and the warrior Achilles. Although the story covers only a few weeks in the final year of the war, the Iliad mentions or alludes to many of the Greek legends about the siege; the earlier events, such as the gathering of warriors for the siege, the cause of the war, and related concerns tend to appear near the beginning. Then the epic narrative takes up events prophesied for the future, such as Achilles' looming death and the sack of Troy, prefigured and alluded to more and more vividly, so that when it reaches an end, the poem has told a more or less complete tale of the Trojan War. The Iliad is paired with something of a sequel in The Odyssey. Having spent ten years fighting in the Trojan War, Odysseus embarks on his journey back to Ithica. To get there he must deceive a giant Cyclops, face Poseidon's wrath, escape cannibalism, defeat the witch-goddess Circe, skirt the land of the Sirens, sail between a six-headed monster and a raging whirlpool, and escape captivity on the island of Calypso. But perhaps his biggest threat is his prolonged absence from home, as 108 suitors are vying for his wife's hand in marriage. Both stories were intended to be sung by an epic poet. Along with The Odyssey, The Iliad is among the oldest extant works of Western literature, and its written version is usually dated to around the eighth century BC. In this edition of Samuel Butler's translation, the names of the gods and characters have been restored from Latin to the original Greek. This edition is limited to 1,000 copies.

Oceans Odyssey 2 presents the results of the discovery and archaeological survey of ten deep-water wrecks by Odyssey Marine Exploration. In the Western Approaches and western English Channel, a mid-17th century armed merchantman, the guns of Admiral Balchin's Victory (1744), the mid-18th century French privateer La Marquise de Tourny and six German U-boats lost at the end of World War II are examined in depth. From the Atlantic coast of the United States, the Jacksonville 'Blue China' wreck's British ceramics, tobacco pipes and American glass wares bring to life the story of a remarkable East Coast schooner lost in the mid-19th century. These unique sites expand the boundaries of human knowledge, highlighting the great promise of deep-sea wrecks, the technology needed to explore them and the threats from nature and man that these wonders face. Challenges to managing underwater cultural heritage are also discussed, along with proposed solutions for curating and storing collections.

Collects The Odyssey #1-8. Odysseus...son of Laertes, husband of Penelope, father of Telemachus, warrior-king of Ithaca. For ten years he struggled against men, monsters, and gods - kept alive only by his sacred desire that one day he might see again the homefires of his island kingdom. The terrors he faced were the stuff of legend. The towering, man-eating Cyclops...the languid Lotus Eaters and their taste that brought oblivion...Scylla and Charybdis, the twin terrors between whom no seaman could safely pass...Circe, the witch-goddess who turned men into mindless swine...the living-dead souls of Hades, shambling forth from the underworld in search of blood to drink...and Odysseus himself? He, too, was a myth...but he was also a man. And the hero of one of the great epic poems of Western civilization, whose story has remained exciting and modern for nearly three thousand years.
