FYI Edit

If Homer existed, he may have been arhapsode, or professional performer of epic poetry, who dictated his poems to a scribe right around the time that the Greek alphabet came into use (sometime around 800 B.C.E.). Either way, the Ancient Greeks believed that he was a blind storyteller who was from either the Greek island of Chios or the coast of present-day Turkey.
