Ithaca, Greece, where Odysseus was king, was his home. However, not the modern Ithaki. The peninsula of Paliki on the island of Kefalloni best matches the description as given in Homer: 'I am Odysseus, Laertes' son, world-famed For stratagems: my name has reached the heavens. Bright Ithaca is my home: it has a mountain, Leaf-quivering Neriton, far visible. Around are many islands, close to each other, Doulichion and Same and wooded Zacynthos. Ithaca itself lies low, furthest to sea Towards dusk; the rest, apart, face dawn and sun.' Modern Ithaki is not furthest to sea towards dusk.
But the Kefallonia peninsula of Paliki best fits the description. Zacynthos is the only island in the area that still has the same name as in the the Odyssey. It is theorized that a earthquake filled in a channel that separated Paliki from the rest of Kefallonia similar to landslips from earthquakes in other areas of the world. Kefallonia is in one of the most active earthquake areas of the world. The people from Ithaca, (Paliki) could have left after a devestating earthquake and move to Doulichion, and changed its name to Ithaki after the name of their original home. Kefallonia would have been the island of Same. Today, there is a city on Kefallonia that is called Sami.
Nausicaa, emboldened by Athena, first greets the naked Odysseus whom has washed upon the island of Scheria.
