Even though Eumaios does not know it is his master, he still allows Odysseus to come inside and make him feel comfortable. Eumaios’s actions prove the significance of the practice of xenia throughout Ancient Greece.
Many have argued that the ending of Homer’s Odyssey does not in fact end with book XXIV, but rather, Homer originally ends in book XXIII when Odysseus and Penelope go to bed together. Those who believe this statement say that the rest of book XXIII and book XXIV were later added by someone other than Homer.
