ITHAKA > MYTHOLOGY

Mythology of Ithaka Greek Islands Ionian Greece

In Greek mythology, Ithaca's name originated from Kefalonia. At that time, King Pterelaos of Kefalonia, his three sons, Ithacos, Neritos and Polyktorios, built a fountain that supplied Ithaca with badly needed water.

Ithacos lent his name to the island, Neritos to its highest mountain, and Polyktorios to the region of the same name. It is in Kefalonia, too, that the origin of the name of Laertes, Odysseus' father, can be traced. Laertes was a grandson of Cephalus, king of Kefalonia.

Above all, Ithaca is homeland to the central character of Homer's Odyssey - the island of Odysseus. Before finally setting foot on Ithaca's sacred soil, Odysseus went through unimaginable hardship, roaming for 10 years around the Mediterranean, inflicted by Poseidon's rage. Finally, after executing the suitors who wasted his fortune and pursued his wife, he was restored to his throne.
