Meanwhile beautiful Nausicaa, daughter of King Alcinous, after Athena’s exhortation, goes to the very same coast with her friends and servants where they swim, do laundry and play the ball shouting and singing. Odysseus, exhausted and sea stormed takes the desicion and reveals himself, asking for help. Nausicaa, charmed by his looks provides him food and clothes and invites him to the palace to meet her father. Alcinous welcomes the hero, hosts him and asks him to recite his adventures. Alcinous got so much impressed that he even offered to marry him with his daughter. But Odysseus was not interested in this scenario.
