Bust of Homer

The bust of Homer in the central square of Ithaca in Vathy, is crafted by the sculptor Stathis Alexopoulos.

 

The bust of Homer was built thanks to the sponsorship of Gerasimos K. Vallatos.

On it is engraved the oracle of Delphi to the Emperor of Rome, Hadrian:

 

"ΕΔΟΣ Δ' ΙΘΑΚΗΣΙΟΣ ΕΣΤΙΝ ΤΗΛΕΜΑΧΟΣ ΔΕ ΠΑΤΗΡ ΚΑΙ ΝΕΣΤΟΡΕΗ.ΕΠΙΚΑΣΤΗ ΜΗΤΗΡ, ΗΜΙΝ ΕΤΙΚΤΕ ΒΡΟΤΩΝ ΠΟΛΥ ΠΑΝΣΟΦΟΝ ΑΝΔΡΑ".
