Boiotia, Athens, the Peisistratids and the <i>Odyssey</i>’s Catalogue of Heroines
In Odysseus’ account of the Underworld told to the Phaeacians, his selection of heroines (Od. 11.225-332) focuses on legends of Boeotia, southern Thessaly, and Athens; literary and archaeological evidence for connections between the Peisistratids, Boeotia, and Thessaly suggest a time and region for the incorporation of this catalogue of women in the poem.
