Abstract

Identifying the location of the island of Ithaca, legendary home of Odysseus, has been a problem<br>for historians for centuries. The modern island of Ithaki, in the Ionian Sea, does not match the<br>description in Homer’s epic poem. In 2003 Robert Bittlestone initiated a study of the Paliki peninsula in<br>western Cephalonia in an attempt to determine whether this was the island that Homer called Ithaca,<br>then separated from the rest of Cephalonia by a sea channel later described by the Greek geographer<br>Strabo.
