The Pillars

The identification of present Ithaca with the Homeric


The identification of Ithaca with the Homeric is supported here by ten main Pillars, which provide evidence deriving from pre-history and the pre-Homeric era, place-names, the Odyssey, tradition, archaeology and history. These Pillars demonstrates a dense network of clear and specific Odyssean-Homeric indicative evidence.

Guide: The texts in the exhibition are summarized. The full text exists in this booklet. The visitor to the exhibition, because of the unusual but necessary volume of written material has three choices: To limit himself to the summaries of each chapter-pillar, to rely on the titles or the explanatory text following the titles, or to read the full text in the booklet.
