Crystal Bowl Faraglioni
In Italian, faraglioni are “stacks”, a coastal and oceanic rock formation eroded by waves.
Ulysses blinded Polyphemus with a wooden stake while he slept, but when he shouted for help saying that nobody had hurt him the other Cyclops thought he had been afflicted by a divine power and told him to pray. Ulysses and his men tied themselves under the sheep and escaped when Polyphemus let them out to graze. Furious and blind, Polyphemus threw three immense boulders of black lava stone at Ulysses’ ships.
These are called the Faraglioni and may still be seen today.
