This raises an exception to xenos, the Greek moral code of hospitality. Zeus, throughout the Odyssey enforces this moral code and punishes those who do not follow its provisions.

Zeus says- “Earth shaker, you with your massive power, why moaning so?
This varies from the classical tale; however, it reminds us of the fact that Jupiter had great power with responsibility as King of all Gods but still shares human qualities such as emotions of love, lust and unfaithfulness. In comparison Zeus, which can be seen as the Greek parallel to Jupiter, also has a tendency to be unfaithful which causes the majority of events.

Not knowing of the consequences that might occur, Odysseus shouted his real name to the Cyclops, which essentially caused him a great deal of trouble afterwards. ”Hear me Poseidon…Grant that Odysseus / Son of Laertes, / May never reach his home on Ithaca. “ (Book 9, 22-25) prays Polyphemus.
