A

Answer: D. He does not live by the same rules and customs as the Greeks.

A cyclops is a one-eyed giant, common in ancient Greek literature and folklore, known to be extremely primitive and ruthless. He lives in the distant land of Sicily, far away from human population and also known to be a cannibal. A cyclops does not live by the same laid down rules and custom as the Greeks do. The cyclops does whatever he likes but will not disobey the rules of the gods. A cyclops is not hospitable in any sense because he was going to eat Odysseus and his men, which wasn’t hospitable and hospitality is known to be very important to the Greeks, particularly the gods.
