Kalypso was a mythological nymph, mostly known in Homer’s Odyssey. She lived isolated onan island called Ogygia, ate ambrosia and drank nectar. Her ability was to transform a mortal man into an immortal one.Historians posterior to Homer have also been using the names of Oceanis or Atlantis to refer to Kalypso
