Circe was a minor goddess of m a g i c. She was renowned for her vast knowledge of drugs and herbs. Through the use of magical potions and a wand she transformed her enemies, or those who offended her, into animals. Namely in the Odyssey when she invited Odysseus' crew to a feast of familiar food, a pottage of cheese and meal, sweetened with honey and laced with wine, but also laced with one of her magical potions. Thus she turned them all into swine with a wand after they gorged themselves on it.
