Q: What should I do? Circes turn me into a pig.
A: Go down to the first floor and come back to the second floor again to
overhear the conversation between Circes and Myrops. He stabs Circes
after she told him that she has turned you into a pig. Wait until Myrops
walks to her laboratory on the third floor. Talk with the dying Circes.
She promises to help you if you can pick her medicine in her lab.
How can I reach Circes' labs?
A: Go down stair and walk outside. Follow the uphill path into the back
of the house. Enter the balcony on the second floor and climb the ladder
to the roof. Keep on climbing the roof to the left side. You will see an
open window at the far north area of the roof. This window will lead you
to her laboratory.
Q: Where is the medicine?
A: The jar/pouch is tied to the rope at the edge of the wooden floor.
How can I retrieve the pouch?
A: Since you could not pull up the rope, you just need to bite it so the
jar will fall down to the second floor. You need to put something there
first so that the jar will not break when it falls down. Bite the rope
that hold the weight. This act will mark a spot to put the pillow on the
second floor. Bite the pillow and go down to the second floor through
the staircase. Place it on the wooden floor between Circes and the
staircase to the labs. Look at the image above for approximate. Go back
up to the lab through the opening window. This time bite the rope that
holds the jar. The jar will drop to the pillow below. Go down stair and
bite the jar. Give it to Circes. She will turn you back into your normal
human appearance and give you Myrops' knife. He's the one who kills
Mikis in Troy. She will tell you to go to Hades to find Tiresias. He
will show you how to find Ulysses.
