Homer’s tomb is located on the hill of Psathopyrgos, in the northern part of Ios over Plakotos bay. Homer’s burial on the island is confirmed by ancient historians such as Herodotus, Pausanias, Strabo and Alcaeus. According to ancient literature, Homer stopped at Ios, on his journey to Samos, but died on the island from his grief that he failed to solve an enigma posed to him by the inhabitants. The relationship of Homer with Ios is also confirmed by the local coins that bear on one side (3rd & 2nd century BC). Consequently, the findings in the bay of Plakotos, found in 1175, were attributed to the tomb of Homer, while Ios is also considered the birthplace of his mother, Kleimeni.
