Odysseus's Ithaca : The Discovery
 


BACK


Remains of the high (Homer's Raven's) Rock covered with oak trees. A smaller dry-stone wall is in the foreground of the picture, and a part of a larger dry-stone wall is visible immediately in front of the rock. Behind the rock is the hill of Spilovouno (Homer's Nion) covered with cypress forests, at the very peak of which is a stone tower. To the right the Straits of Ithaca are visible and the northern part of the present-day island of Ithaca (Homer's Same). In the far left above the hill of Spilovouno, the dark outline of the island of Levkas (Homer's Dulichium) is visible. The view is towards the north from the stone tank located in the field below the village of Katsarata on Eresos.

Stone tank in the valley below the village of Katsarata, on the path to Maganos. The view is from the path down the valley. The tank stands out in the centre of the picture as a square structure on an elevated part of the slope. I believe this used to be Homer's natural Spring of Arethusa, from where the water flowed down into the funnel-shaped valley where Homer's Raven's Rock of ancient Ithaca was located

Close-up view of the tank reveals a front side constructed from stone with an elevated square opening and a wooden cover on top of it. Several stone containers of primitive shapes, and water receptacles carved in stone can be found near the tank, evidence of the fact that an active source of running water once existed on the spot.
