UPDATE: Odysseus was the first to overcome him.The ship had to sail between Scylla and Charybdis. On one side of a narrow strait Charybdis pulled everything nearby into a vast whirlpool.

The ship succeeded in getting through with a burst of speed but not before losing six sailors to the jaws of Scylla.
