Eurylochus got what he deserved because Odysseus told them to swear they wouldn 't eat the cattle and they all told Odysseus they wouldn 't. Eurylochus made the whole crew turn against Odysseus and disobey his orders. Eurylochus convinced the crew to go behind Odysseus’ back and do what they were told not while Odysseus was sleeping by saying “Comrades, he said, you 've gone through everything; listen to what I say.

Though Odysseus cautioned his men against touching Helios’ cattle, his men did not heed his warning.

Odysseus had to use his strength and sense to overcome the problems his

Aylmer is the philosopher and that is why he always thinks the things should be just perfect.

It also exhibited leadership because it revealed devotion and it gained respect of the buggers. Although he is bright and compassionate, he could also be hostile.
