Theoklymenos is a blind seer who hails from Sparta. He was exiled from Argos for killing one of his relatives, and is now a fugitive. He fled to Pylos, where he met Telemakhos. He prophesied to Telemakhos that Odysseus was back in Ithaka, which convinces Telemakhos to head back home. During one of the suitors' dinners, Theoklymenos prophesies the deaths of the suitors, who laugh and do not believe him. (VL)
