Book 2 and 3
Telemachus speaks in front of the villagers and the suitors, asking for the suitors to leave his house and stop destroying his possessions. The villagers and suitors mock him and say he can't make them leave until Penelope marries one of them. Telemachus then asks for help with his voyage to Pylos. Later, the crowd leaves and Telemachus starts to get ready for his journey. Athena disguises herself as the prince and goes through the village, asking men for ships and crewmembers. Then, Telemachus leaves on his voyage, and Athena comes with him.
Telemachus then lands on the island of Pylos and just as they enter, the crew sees everybody sacrificing cows and goats to the gods. Telemachus has some trouble with words and asks Mentor, who is Athena disguised, to help him out, and how to greet King Nestor. He talks to King Nestor and asks about his father. To Telemachus's dismay, King Nestor doesn't know the condition of Odysseus but tells Telemachus that he and his father talk exactly the same. So, King Nestor tells Telemachus that King Menelaus of Sparta, may have some information and sets Telemachus off with his son Pisistratus.
