Most of the allusions are connectid to classic mythology. I can mention a few but you will have to look them up for greater detail.

- Allusion to the Quest for the Golden Fleece when Circe tells Odysseus about the Wandering Rocks.

-In Book 11 Odysseus encounters famous dead people like "Eriphyle" (she had sold her husband for gold.) She is an allusion to Amphiaraus of Argos.

Achilleus and the Trojan horse are others.
