The goddess nymph of the mythical island of Ogygia
Calypso and Odysseus
Calypso lived on the island of Ogygia, on the coast where Odysseus was thrown when he was shipwrecked. Calypso loved Odysseus and promised him eternal youth and immortality if he would stay with her. She kept him in her island for seven years, until she was forced to let him continue his journey by gods.
