A Great Rarity

Phil Anthos

Recommended Posts

If I recall my Greek myths correctly, the cyclops Polyphemus, famous from the Odyssey, was the son of Poseidon and the nymph Thoos. Less well known is that Polyphemus later fell in love with Galatea, and although she initially spurned him because of his great ugliness, she eventually came to love him.  They had a son named Mechanos.  He was the first bicyclops, and inventor of the device pictured above.
