While Vlahos' argument for the recognition of Odysseus by Penelope as early as at Book 17 of the Odyssey (published in the same issue of the journal) has its attractions, closer examination of the text and his argument suggests that some sort of early recognition is feasible at Book 19, as proposed by Harsh, but not as early as Book 17.
