This paper aims to study Homer's Catalogue of Ships from a perspective different from that of archaeology. Cultural Geography is related to personal identity and landscape; the Catalogue constructs two main images of landscape: The Achaean Catalogue depicts montains and a rugged scenario, while the Trojan Catalogue refers to the fertile river landscape of Western Anatolia. It will be argued that the Catalogue maps identities and it is an expression of Panhellenisim.
