Where will you find things like these?

Hurry up and get your items quickly before this limited time offer ends!

If you buy items for 200 dollars or more, you will get to pick an object to take home for free.

We are located on county road next to the Statue of Odysseus.

Guess what! A new toy has taken over the world. This toy is amazing and everybody loves it. Anyway, this toy represents a Cyclops with just one round eye.

Its color is black and brown.
In his hands, the Cyclops is holding men and, when you press a button, he will squeeze them;
just like what happened with Odysseus’s men.
Not only that, but it is 3ft long. You can find it in any of Odysseus' or Penelope’s shops.

With the Cyclops you will also get a toy representing Odysseus.
Odysseus is also 3ft tall, but in one hand he carries a sword and in the other a shield.

Every day, at midnight, the 2 toys come to life and start fighting each other.
Odysseus’s men try to get out of the Cyclops’s hand but they fail.
Some men will be able to escape and help Odysseus fight the Cyclops.
In the morning the two toys will get back to the same position and condition you put them in.

These toys are amazing and you can watch their battle at midnight.

So, buy them, buy them now, before they are all sold out.

The company “The Odyssey, Inc.” made thirty thousand copies of that toy and only five thousand remain. Many people are still buying.
Hurry, hurry, and don’t be late.
The toy has ranked among the top five toys in the world. It is an amazing object.

Ladies and Gentlemen, 

 

 On June 1, 2004, a lifetime opportunity Event will be held in Ithaca, Greece. 

You have the opportunity to meet every main character in the Odyssey. 


Odysseus will definitely be there, awaiting everyone to come and meet him. 

The beautiful Goddess, calypso will be there as well. She will show you all the love that she can give! 

Zeus, the father of all gods, is also going to be there. He will be selling his thunderbolts to anyone who wants to buy them. 

However, I must warn you that they are very powerful! Zeus would be very angry if you used them on any person! 

Poseidon, the fearful god of the ocean will wait for you in Ithaca. He is selling sample parts of the ocean, and more importantly, his weapons too. Poseidon will be really angry if you don’t buy things from him; so if you go, make sure you buy! 

Athena, the goddess of wisdom will show you the greatest wisdom you will ever see. 

Don’t miss it. Not only that, but a lot of objects are being sold, such as Odysseus’ clothes, his bow, his ships, and even his power. 

Please, everyone, come to Ithaca, and don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!
