Abstract

In this paper my aim is to show that the physical impact of today’s Greece is extremely important for the classicists: by experiencing the Greek landscape, climate, nature they are enabled to better understand the ancient texts and, in some case, to find new solutions for old problems. The discussion focuses in particular on the island of Syros (the homeland of Eumaeus) and on the canal of Xerxes in the Mount Athos peninsula.
