The relation between suitors, noblemen and servant results very complex in the Odyssey . Inside of the expanded domestic world that the poem offers, we do not find a clear response to the presence of the suitors, neither to the social roll playing by the servants, whose definitory characteristic is to have being noblemen and express at that time an authentic proof of variations of the fortune. That is the case of Eurykleia and Eumaios. This work proposes the discussion of the elaboration of the limits between one social class and another, as the constitution of the boundary between them, to interpret the form in which is joined in the poem the social situation by the minor characters with the relationship about the protagonist hero.
