Telemachus

???










The son of Odysseus and Penelope. Because his father took so long to return after the end of the Trojan War, he set out to seek him stopping on the way at Pylos and Sparta where he was hospitably received by Nestor and Menelaus respectively, but where he could get no leading information about his father. Returning to Ithaca, he encountered Odysseus who had arrived only a few days before and together they slew the suitors of Penelope. According to the numerous legends concerning Telemachus, he had affairs with various women, some saying Cassiphone, daughter of Odysseus by Circe, others saying Circe herself, and yet others Nausicaa, the daughter of Alcinous, king of the Phaeacians. [p.77]
