Scheria, Corkyra, Kerkyra, Pheakia, Drepani, Korifo are some names that were attributed to today's Corfu.
In Scheria Homer places the penultimate station of Odysseus' return to Ithaca. Coming from Oygia (Sicily?), he met the princess Nafsika, who hosted him in her palace. Her father, King Alkinoos, offered him the boat to take him to Ithaca.
