Ποσειδάωνος: ὁ δ᾽ ἀσπερχὲς μενέαινεν / ἀντιθέῳ Ὀδυσῆι πάρος ἣν γαῖαν ἱκέσθαι
"...Poseidon, who continued his relentless anger against godlike Odysseus until he reached his own land at last" is ἐνοσίχθων, "earth-shaker," god of sea and of earthquakes. Can relentless anger have stirred earth and sea to conceal Ithaca itself? Homer would have accepted that.

Fascinating difference in the sand.
