As mentioned in the Odyssey, Nestor (the son of Neleus), the king of Pylos, with his wife Eurydice (the daughter of Klymenos) had 7 sons and a last-born daughter, whose name was Polykasti. When Telemachus went to Pylos to ask Nestor about the fate of his father, Ulysses, and after sacrificing to the goddess Athena before the farewell dinner, he was bathed by the beautiful Polykasti herself, who anointed him with perfumed oil and garbed him in his tunic and chlamys. This innocent practice of that Heroic era, that is for a princess to bathe a foreigner, signified a love affair. According to Hesiodus, after 9 months Polykasti bore Telemachus a son named Persepolis.
