The God Hermes told Odysseus about the moli sacred herb, (nobody knows what it is now, some say it is the Galanthus or snowdrop) and the King of Itaca was protected then by the evil enchantments of Circe the witch, sometimes considered a Goddess, others a nymph, others a Queen or an enchantress. Probably all those things. Circe was later reinterpretated as a depressive delusional figure. Feminists, especially those with Mistress attitudes as an inspirational figure. I reject any modern interpretation of entheogens, I highly dislike stoners.
Ulysses, anyway, came home because Penelope was a better person or a more powerful witch 🙂 probably both.
Hermes always seems to protects intelligent men
