    Eurycleia had raised Odysseus since he was a child. In this scene Eurycleia recognises Odysseus, who is disguised as a beggar with a crutch and wine-skin over his shoulder, by the scar on his knee. The scar was caused by a wild boar when he was hunting with his father as a young man. The swineherd Eumaeus is also watching.
