Question and answer

[ Odysseus wishes to test Eumaeus' loyalty as Odysseus does not know if Eumaeus is loyal until much later. Odysseus wishes to keep his secret, and telling one person will make his plans less likely to succeed. Further, there is no real benefit
to telling Eumaeus when he first meets him. Read more: ]
