Polyphemus' Fall



Journeying from Camelot to the Misty Isles, Prince Valiant and his family are shipwrecked on an island seemingly inhabited by the sirens of Greek legend.

As Aleta is menaced by the scylla, her husband battles the sirens' protector, Polyphemus. Their battle ends with the giant stumbling down a sea cliff, a fall which miraculously aids Aleta.
