Odysseus's Ithaca : The Discovery
 


BACK


Western shore of the northern peninsula of Eresos on the island of Cephallonia from Cape Vlioti to the Assos fortress. The shore is exceptionally rocky and faces the open sea. The only bay convenient for anchoring small vessels on this part of Eresos is Aghia Jerusalem (Homer's Bay of Phorcys). The island of Levkas (Homer's Dulichium) and its Cape Ducato are visible behind the peninsula of Eresos.

The broken part of the western shore of Eresos, with a path leading to the Bay of Aghia Jerusalem (right). The bay faces the open sea. The outer part of the bay corresponds in detail to the description presented by Homer in the Odyssey. It was once the Harbour of Phorcys belonging to the commune of Ithaca.

Another part of the Bay of Aghia Jerusalem, at the far end of which is a cave. Both sides of the bay are protected from the large waves of the open sea so that boats do not need to be anchored or moored once near the beach.

A single cave with one opening (Homer's cave of the Naiads), located on the northern side of the mountain range, immediately below the rock at the opposite end of the Bay of Aghia Jerusalem. Its entrance is located under an overhang, shown in the centre of the picture as a stone ledge.
