Odysseus and his crew were sent to the Land of the Cannibals. There, due to lack of hospitality, the Laestrygonians "invited" them in and ate them. Odysseus, and the crew that was left, fled back to their boats and got away.
"But the king let loose a howling through the town that brought tremendous Laestrygonians swarming upfrom every side—hundreds, not like men, like Giants’Down from the cliffs they ﬂung great rocks a man could hardly hoistand a ghastly shattering din rose up from all the ships—men in their death-cries, hulls smashed to splinters—They speared the crews like ﬁshand whisked them home to make their grisly meal." (Fagels, 159)
