Paliki is as well the name of the peninsula as the name of a village on that peninsula. According to Robert Bittlestone’s 2005 book Odysseus Unbound, Paliki was Homer’s Ithaca, the home of Odysseus, the central figure in the Odyssey of Homer.

Some theories state that Paliki was Homer’s Ithaca, the place where Odysseus is from. When Odysseus introduces himself to King Alcinnos on the island of Corfu, he says he is from Ithaca, near the wooded Zakynthos, the island south of Paliki.

Besides a village, Paliki is also the name of the complete peninsula of Cephalonia. This area is probably the Ithaca mentioned by Homer. It fits with the description of the mountain Neriton & Neion and Phorcys Bay.
