"Homer (Homero, Omero)" (see related A), ? BC Capitoline Museums, Rome, Italy

Epic Greek poet, often portrayed as blind (amaurosis) who, perhaps, is fictional or lived about 850 BC. Homer is given as the author of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and Hymns, seen as the early Theology of the emerging ancient western civilization. I agree with the view that Homer is a prime theologian and a Cardinal of esthetic values. (W. Wertelecki, M.D.)

(Oda, ode, odeon, odometer ...Odysseus, Odesa, Odessa ...
Mentor was the name of the mentor of Odysseus and who raised his son ...
the above are examples of Homeric impacts on many ideas permeating western languages).
