Ithaki, in the Ionian islands, near the Peloponnese, was important in the Bronze Age for Minoan and Mycenaean trade. There is evidence for both Minoan and Mycenaean presence on the island, demonstrated most recently by the find of the Minoan idol in the 2001 excavations. It is of note and of interest that a Minoan idol was also found at Kafkania near Olympia in the Peloponnese along with the controversial Linear inscribed pebble. Also it is of note that a Minoan idol and a Masons' Mark have also been found at Pylos. It is interesting to see the connection between Pylos, Olympia and Ithaki in West Greece. The same geographical connection is also testified to in the Late Bronze Age by both Minoan and/or Mycenaean finds related to trade and cult and possibly scribal matters.
