Were you expecting to see the HOME key mapped elsewhere?

In the output of 'xmodmap -pk' – this should list the key bindings/ key symbols as used in X11. GNU Emacs sees these names, too.

The output of 'xmodmap -pk' follows the geometry of your keyboard. Look in those lines output for symbols in the neighbourhood of Home. Or for "Find."

If you than create a file ~/.xmodmaprc with a contents like

        keycode <the number of Find in xmodmap's output> = Home

and add to ~/.xinitrc a line like

        xmodmap ${HOME}/.xmodmap

before the first X client is launched, your Home key will be known as your Home key.

If you won't change more keys, you can also use a line like

        xmodmap -e 'keycode <the number of Find in xmodmap's output> = Home'

directly – or on the command line for a test.
