Homer Odyssey, Book IX
19-21: I am Odysseus son of Laertes, reknowned among mankind
for all manner of subtlety, so that my fame ascends to heaven.
I live in Ithaca, where there is a high mountain called Neritum.
34-38: for there is nothing dearer to a man than his own country and parents,
however splendid a home he may have in a foreign country.
Now, I will tell you of the many hazardous adventours
which by Zeu’s will I met with on my return from Troy.
