Chios : Homer, Paperback Book

Description

Chios claims Homer as its native son. In this booklet Jill Dudley describes the ancient site north of the port of Chios where the author of the Iliad and the Odyssey taught and sang his epic poems.

She visits the temples of pagan gods who divinely intervened in the Trojan War, and describes how Helen of Troy was worshipped as a goddess in the northwest of the island.

It is as the back cover of the booklet says: all you need to know about the island's myths, legends and its gods.
