Same (ancient Greece)Not to be confused with Samos
Same , also Samos (Σάμος) is an Ancient Greek name of a Homeric island in the Ionian Sea, near Ithaca and Cephalonia. In Homer's Odyssey Same is described as part of Odysseus's kingdom together with Ithaca, Dulichium, and Zacynthus. The Iliad, book II, in the Catalogue of Ships, contains a different list of islands comprising Odysseus's kingdom. Same is included together with Ithaca, Neritum, Krocylea, Aegilips and Zacynthus, indicating that the "Catalogue of Ships" could be a later addition to the Iliad.
In Homer's Odyssey, there is an interesting geographical description:
From the above passage, it is obvious that Homer's Same is not the Greek island Samos in the Eastern Aegean Sea, Same should be located in the Ionian Sea, near Homer's Ithaca and there should be at least one rocky island between the two islands. Also, this rocky island should be located South of Homer's Ithaca where Telemakhos would arrive from South-West Peloponnese. Based on the above information, Wilhelm Dörpfeld in his essay "Alt-Ithaka: Ein Beitrag zur Homer-Frage" proposed that Same was present day Ithaca. Other authors make extensive description of Dörpfeld's theory. C.H. Goekoop corresponds "Same" to " Thiaki", "the islet Asteris" to Arkoudi and "the bay of Phorkys" to "Syvota Bay" at Lefkada. Today, Arkoudi remains an uninhabited, rocky islet of no great size, just like Asteris was described by Homer, while small boats and yachts can still harbour on both the East and the West coast of it.
Odysseus's younger sister, Ctimene came to Same to marry Eurylochus for a massive bride-price.
One of the Suitors, Ctesippus of Same is described as "a man who had no sense of right and wrong" and attempts to throw an ox's hoof from the meat-basket of the dinner table at Odysseus.
