Marble votive relief

From Mouzaki of Thessaly (ancient Gomphoi).

NAM, Γ1914

This is the only relief that depicts at the same time two scenes of the Homeric narrative in the palace of Ithaka, following the perilous return of Odysseus from Troy. On the left, the recognition of the hero by his old nurse, Eurycleia, who, while washing his feet, she spots an old wound on his leg. On the right Penelope is depicted in front of an upright loom.
