The legendary Greek king of Ithaca and the hero of Homer’s epic poem the Odyssey. Odysseus also plays a key role in Homer’s Iliad and other works in that same epic cycle.
Son of Laertes and Anticlea, husband of Penelope, and father of Telemachus and Acusilaus.
Odysseus is renowned for his intellectual brilliance, guile, and versatility (polytropos), and is thus known by the epithet Odysseus the Cunning (Greek: μῆτις or mētis, “cunning intelligence”).
He is most famous for his nostos, or “homecoming”, which took him ten eventful years after the decade-long Trojan War.
Odysseus is probably best known as the eponymous hero of the Odyssey.
This epic describes his travails, which lasted for 10 years, as he tries to return home after the Trojan War and reassert his place as rightful king of Ithaca.
