The two Sirens -- aren't Sirens. The sirens were beautiful women who sang so
beautifully that they lured men captivated by   their song to forge to steer
the ship and crash on the rocks, the two monsters that must be navigated
between are Scyllia and Charybillus (check spelling, I'm not sure if it's
right). One grabbed sailors off he ship with hundreds of long tenacles, the
other created a whirling vortex which destroyed the ship.
