A solar eclipse’s evolution was described in the Iliad in a stepwise mode manifested in increasing gradual darkness, during a warm day at late noon; from Sarpedon’s death time to few later from Patroclus’ death time. We examined the solar eclipses within the time span 1400-1130 B.C. and we found that only the annular solar eclipse on 6th June 1218 yr B.C. observable in Troy with significant obscuration 75.2 % fits fully with the Homeric descriptions.

Participation in the International SEAC Conference in Athens.(SEAC – Société Européenne pour l’Astronomie dans la Culture).
a) Homeric Calendar. For first time will be presented a well hidden very accurate Calendar similar with the today used. Based in the Methodology of Mythology, continuously new facts from the ancient world are coming in light. This calendar gives:
The Synodic month – The Sidereal month with an accuracy of 27,3333 days! The year as 364.5 days and periodically with 366 days. Confirms also the accuracy of the ancient texts after their re-translation from the Alexandrians Philosophers.
For first time the accurate description of the Orion’s asterism, referred hidden inside the “Odyssey” with an incredible and astonishing way.
Questions about many texts of the last 2.500 years answered with use of simple true Logic.
b) Ancient Astro-Navigation. The sea voyagers of the Mediterranean sea, knew how to navigate with accuracy to any destination by simply using the stars and the then asterisms. An easy method to find your way without the use of a compass, by studying a few details in the sky, as long as there are visible …stars and not clouds. Something very common in these areas.
