Πηνελόπεια / Penelópē

O fortunate son of Laertes, Odysseus of many devices,

surely you won yourself a wife endowed with great virtue.

How good was proved the heart that is in blameless Penelope,

Ikarios’ daughter, and how well she remembered Odysseus,

her wedded husband. Thereby the fame of her virtue shall never

die away, but the immortals will make for the people

of earth a thing of grace in the song for prudent Penelope.


(The Odyssey - Homer)
