athens - Archaeologists have found the oldest copy of the world-famous poem Odyssee in Greece. A team of Greek and German researchers found Homer's poem on a clay tablet in Olympia.

On the tablet are thirteen verses of the poem about the wanderings of the hero Odysseus. Presumably the poem was written around 800 BC. The tablet probably dates back to 300 AD, as the Ministry of Culture in Greece has announced.

The inscription is to follow the ministry of great archaeological, literary and historical value.
