For the genus of moth, see Thrinacia Thrinacia is the island home of the Cattle of Helios in Book XII of Homer's Odyssey, guarded by Helios' daughters Lampetia and Phaethusa. Odysseus and his crew arrive at Thrinacia after passing Charybdis. Odysseus has been warned by both Circe and the shade of Tiresias to avoid Thrinacia, but his men beg him to let them stop and rest, he reluctantly makes them swear an oath not to touch the cattle on the island. However, for the next month unfavorable winds blow continuously and they are unable to leave; when Odysseus goes to pray for a safe return to Ithaca, his crew, fearing starvation and eat some of Helios' cattle. In punishment, when they sail away from the island, Helios pleads to Zeus to send a thunderbolt at their ship, killing all the men except Odysseus. Odysseus is spared but, as forewarned by Circe and Tiresias, is himself punished when his return to Ithaca is delayed by a seven-year sojourn on Ogygia. Homeric Thrinacia was identified with Sicily, its name re-interpreted as Trinakria.

But Homeric Thrinacia is associated with Malta, Sicily is instead identified with the episode of the Cyclops Polyphemus
