The Cattle of the Sun God?

Answer

The Cattle of the Sun God were found on the island of Thrinacia and they were protected by Helios' daughters named Lampetie and Phaethusa. When the sun god Odysseus and his crew landed on that island, he ordered his men not to get close or touch the cattle which is a promise they broke when hunger hit the land. They sacrificed one of the finest cattle and feasted on it. They were later heavily punished by Zeus.
