A clay tablet with an engraved inscription discovered after three years of excavations at the archaeological site of Ancient Olympia has been shown to preserve 13 verses of a rhapsody from Homer’s Odyssey. According to a culture ministry announcement,initial estimates date the tablet to the Roman era, possibly before the 3rd century AD. If the preliminary estimate of its age is confirmed then “the clay
tablet would preserve perhaps the oldest extant written excerpt of the Homeric Epics that has been found, which besides its uniqueness is also a very important archaeological, literary and historical record”.
