Résumé : Research in comparativism between Greek and Indian archaic texts revealed major connections between Mahābhārata 1, 175-181 and Odyssey 21, and specifically structural similarities between Odysseus' return and Arjuna's marriage to Draupadī. Moreover, Rāmāyaṇa 1, 66 also shows ressemblance with the Greek text: the bending of the bow accomplished by Odysseus and Rāma revealed striking textual and phraseological parallels, which comforts the idea of common episodes and patterns in the Indo-Greek area.
