The Advocacy of the Case by CHRISTOS I. TZAKOS Translation: GEOFREY COX

"My homeland is Ithaca, which can be seen to be an island. it has an imposing mountain, Neriton, with trees whose leaves are stirred by the wind, and it is surrounded by many other islands. All of these, every one of these, has some other island very close to it. But three large ones stand out among them: Dulichium, Same, and wooded Zakynthos. All this group of many island, including Ithaca with its low shores, is on the furthest coastal (north-) western sea boundary of the empire of the Achaeans, far from here, where I am speaking to you now, Phaeacians, towards the broader eastern arc of the visible horizon..."
