You have been commissioned to write a new translation of the Odyssey.

How would you translate "πολύτροπος"?
>>
Google translator says it means "multimode" so that's what I would go with.
>>
many-minded. Fits Odysseus's cunning the best
>>
Polutropos
>>
I would translate it as: much given to a taste for gay rape orgies.

But I'm a firm believer in interpolating figurative improvements in the original.

WTF are you talking about mang, ύ is pronounced 'u' in Ancient Greek. Yes the phonym is /y/, but you say that like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Close_front_rounded_vowel
You can thank my belgian ancient languages education.
