  • Odysseus and Telemachos remove the armor
  • Odysseus, in disguise as beggar, meets up with Telemachos, who is the only person who knows its really Odysseus back from his journey. 
  • Interview between Odysseus and Penelope
  • Take yourself out of the door, you wretch, and be well satisfied with your feast, or you may be forced to get out, with a torch thrown at you.
  • Eurykleia is told to wash Odysseus' feet
  • okay
  • Early tomorrow you shall give him a bath, anoint him so that he can sit in the all beside Telemachus and expect to dine there.
  • Eurykleia recognizes Odysseus by his scar, but is silenced.
  • I have come in my 20th year back to my own country but now that you have learned who I am and the god put it into your mind, hush let nobody else in the palace know of it.
  • Why do you hold such an angry grudge against me? Is it because I am poor? Beware of what you do, Odysseus might return and what will you do then?
  • Who are you and from whence?
  • (Odysseus is still in disguise at this time) While the nurse is washing Odysseus' feet she comes across a scar he has and recognizes it, the nurse has now figured out that the man she is washing is Odysseus who is home from his journey.
  • Then dear child you are really Odysseus, I did not know ou before, not until I had touched my lord all over.
