I started the first book having not read this author before. Center of Greek Language and Culture ALEXANDER THE GREAT, Organization for the Dissemination of the Greek Language, Hellenic Union for the Promotion of Rhetoric in Education.

None of the suitors is able to string the bow, and new squabbles arise over whether the beggar should be allowed a turn at trying. References to an ancient solar eclipse in Homer's Odyssey point to April 16, 1178 B.C., as the date of Odysseus' return. These actions will take place mainly from 21 to 31 October of each year and will be titled ODYSSEIA 2017-2018 etc.

* Which would put the beginning of the Trojan War in 1227 B.C. It is in this vineyard that Odysseus finds him, "he found his father alone in the well-ordered vineyard, digging about a plant," [Od. He meets his son Telemachus and the father reveals himself to the son he last saw as an infant. In the first phase they will only cover the final part of Odysseus’ return from the island of Calypso to the island of Phaeacians and from there to Ithaca as well as the corresponding journey of Telemachus from Ithaca to Pylos, Sparta, back to Pylos and return to Ithaca. These nights are wondrous long. such a brilliant re-telling. He dreams of returning to his home; to Ithaca. Books 21 and 22 cover the hours, traditionally given over to games, between the deipnon and the dorpon parts of the banquet. I read a lot of historical fiction based on Greek mythology, and in my opinion Glyn Iliffe's Adventures of Odysseus books are one of the best I have ever read!!!!! "And his mother sat over against Telemachus by the door-post of the hall, leaning against a chair and spinning fine threads of yarn." The NASA's list is based on models VSOP87D for the calculation of the position of Sun and ELP-2000/82 for the calculation of the position of the Moon (Espenak & Meeus 2006 & 2009c).

Telemachus makes plans to return home, while, back in Ithaca, Antinous and the other suitors prepare an ambush to kill him when he reaches port.

However, as Prof. William C. Mullen pointed out to Prof. Papamarinopoulos at a Quantavolution-Conference in Kandersteg, Switzerland, 2009, there are remarkable seasonal and astronomical observations in the narrative of Odysseus' return which must be taken into account and will allow to further whittle down the number of eclipses to be taken into account.

But back on Ithaca things look little better. With his newly found authority, he takes in hand the ordering of the banquet's proceedings: "But now is the time that supper too may be made ready for the Achaeans, while yet there is light, and thereafter must yet other sport be made, with song and with the lyre; for these are the accompaniment of a feast."

Finally, the night before the eclipse, there is a new moon.
