English term or phrase: Pirate
İt cannot have been long after merchantmen first claved tehe waters of the Mediterranean that pirates began to dog their tracks."Strangers who are you?"asks the Cyclops of Odysseus and his nen,"Are you here for trade?Or have you wandered recklessly over the sea like pirates who go about risking their necks to bring trouble on others?" İn the age Homer was describing, piracy was a profession that energetic and adventurous men entered as a recognised way of making a living.
