It is believed that the island is named after the mythical hero Cephalus, or Kefalos, who is claimed to be the island's first king. Legends about Cephalus include the story of him defeating the immortal king of Taphians, Pterelaus, and he also happened to be kidnapped for a time by the goddess of dawn Eos.

Possible switcheroo in the ancient past with the island's name and the nearby Ithaki gives grounds to say that it is in fact the homeland of another ancient hero, Odysseus. In addition, Odysseus is believed to be the direct descendant of Cephalus.

People of Kefalonia, or Cephalonia, honored many ancient greek heroes and gods. Traces from the Temple of Apollo can still be found in Skala. The age and diversity of historical sites will astonish you!
