I think I've read a few versions of the Odyssey in which Circe compares Odysseus to a fox (you know, what with her changing dudes into animals). Was this seen in older accounts of the story? If so, it could be an Older Than Dirt example of Cunning Like a Fox.

Wouldn't this count as Urban Fantasy? The trope is about present day earth + magical elements, and when The Odyssey was written, it kind of was that, wasn't it?

Technically yes; however, it would mean all mythology and religion counts as urban fantasy as well. So it's easier to keep it where it is.
