Head of Odysseus from a Roman period Hellenistic marble group representing Odysseus blinding Polyphemus, found at the villa of Tiberius at Sperlonga, Italy.

Odysseus is the hero in Homer's epic poem The Odyssey. The king of the island of Ithaca, he is renowned for his intelligence and helped the Greeks devise the giant wooden horse, which ultimately ensured their success in the Trojan War. After the fall of Troy, Odysseus and his men spent a decade-long journey trying to return home.
