Maps 2

The following maps are intended to give geographical information relating to the various places mentioned in Homer's Odyssey.

Book X

Map 10 : the supposed location of the Aeolian Islands where King Aeolus kept the winds, though the islands have also been thought of as floating about like the winds themselves, and it is generally safer to assume that the location of the islands is left deliberately vague.

Map 11 : variations on a theme : the location of Lamus (in Cilicia) and Artacia (in Mysia).

Map 12 : Colchis, the kingdom of Aeetes, brother of Circe and father of Medea.

 

Map 13 : the rivers of Hades, the Underworld (Phlegethon, Styx, Cocytus, Acheron and Ocean). Phlegethon (or Piriphlegethon) is a river of fire. Pure mythography.
