"If only that Odysseus sported with these suitors,
a blood wedding, a quick death would take the lot!"

– Homer

The Odyssey, Book 1, lines 307-308. Athena emphasizes to Telemachus what punishment Odysseus would inflict on the sponging suitors. This is foreshadowing of the revengeful bloody end that Odysseus will inflict on the unwelcome squatters in his home.
