The gerasene swine are the creatures of the demiurge

Hermes gives Odysseus a magic substance to be not trasformed in pig differently from other men of Odysseus. The pigs allegorize the creatures of the demiurge: the souls of the men are imprisoned in these bodies.

Jesus expels the demons Legion in the swine. He is giving back to the demiurge what is of the demiurge.
