It was an island to the southeast of Ithaca. According to Homer it belonged to the Echinadian Islands and was inhabited by the Epians. It participated in the Trojan War with Meges or Acastus leading. Strabon identifies Dolichus with the island Doliche, whereas the tradition of modern Greeks identifies it with the sunken island Kakaba, near the cape Skala. Others claim that Dulichium was the name of that part of Kefalonia that was the most distant from Ithaca (I.Pantazides, HomericLexicon, ed. Eleftheri Skepsi, p. 171). GTP locates and has placed Dulichium at the Echinadian Islands.
