There Gloom the Dark Broad Seas

[cross-posted at Austro-Athenian Empire]

This is the first I've heard of it, but apparently some archaeologists believe they've found the tomb of Odysseus. (Conical hat tip to LRC.)

From the information in the article it's not clear to me what warrants their confidence that this is his tomb; but it's a story worth keeping an eye on.

The argument that it's the tomb of Odysseus appears to rest primarily on the claim that a gold brooch exactly matching Homer's description was found there. But this could also mean just that Homer based his description on a design then in use.
