Who is the leader of Penelope's suitors?

Alexander Loney

Wheaton College

A quick survey of scholarship on Penelope’s suitors reveals that some scholars consider Eurymachos to be their leader, while others consider Antinoos to be. In this talk, I will briefly summarize the limited evidence for each view (e.g., Od. 15.16–18; 22.48–59). I think the evidence ambiguous. I will invite discussion on whether and why it is.
