  • The quotation is from Iliad 2. 140 (of course from a quite irrelevant context). But Plotinus’s mind turns immediately to reminiscences of Odyssey 9. 29 ff. and 10. 483-4, where Odysseus tells Alcinous how Calypso and Circe had loved him and tried to detain him on his journey home. Odysseus became in Late antiquity, for Christians as well as pagans, the type of the soul journeying to its true home and overcoming all difficulties and temptations on the way.
