At that final resting place for the migration of the Ionians, then, roving bards of the type described by Milman Parry picked up the "Ithacan" tales, perhaps, and wove them together into the ''Odyssey'': for the entertainment and edification of audiences who knew Paliki well, and initially were very homesick, and longed for it.
