M0808 = Perry405. Source: Syntipas 48 (translated into Latin). This is Perry 405. In Greek mythology, the Cyclopses were a race of uncivilized giants who lived in caves. The Cyclops who guards a treasure, as in this story, is not a typical sort of Cyclops. More typically, you would expect a dragon to be guarding treasure in a cave, as in #628. Compare the story of two men and the treasure, #996.
