Eurylochus is a trouble-making individual in Odysseus' crew on his return home.
His exploits include:
Eurylochus is Odysseus' second in command.
Odysseus becomes angry because Eurylochus tries to undermine his leadership. Eurylochus disregards Odysseus in front of the sailors and unsuccessfully tries to mutiny.
Eurylochus convinces the men that the gods will be appeased if they sacrifice some of the cattle to them.
He's not a god.
Polites entered Circe's palace and was soon followed by all of Eurylochus' men (except for Eurylochus himself). Circe invited them for dinner and added a magical potion to the meal. Eurylochus' men were then turned into pigs.
Eurylochus was defiant. He attempted to stop Odysseus men from following him to Circes house but Odysseus men decided to follow him and Eurylochus came with because Odysseus yelled at him.
Circe greets the men in the palace, but Eurylochus does not enter the palace.
Eurylochus made Odysseus angry by the following actions: Eurylochus convinces the crew to open the bag of winds just before the ship reached Ithaca, thinking that there was treasure inside the bag. After Odysseus rescued the men from Circe, in an attempt to warn the men from going to Circe's house, Eurylochus called the deaths of the crewmates at the cyclops Polphemus' hands the fault of Odysseus' leadership. Eurylochus convinces the crew to kill Hyperion's cattle for meat.
Eurylochus was given command of 22 men to explore the island, (half of the crew). They meet Circe, and feast at her house. However, Eurylochus being suspicious, does not eat of the food or drink the wine. When the crew members are turned into swine, Eurylochus runs back to the ship to warn Odysseus. Later when Odysseus comes back, and Eurylochus does not want to go back to Circe's palace, Odysseus is angry enough to behead him, but is stopped by the rest of the crew.
Eurylochus did not obey to the orders of Odysseus and when Odysseus brought back his colleagues from the palace of Circe they almost had a fight
Eurylochus didn't want to enter the Hall because he sensed Circe's foul play. He was being cautious and didn't want to fall into her trap. Later on, you find out that he was right. Odysseus' men are turned into hogs and Eurylochus rushes to tell him. Hope this helped c:
