Sažetak
The small archipelago of Palagruža is the omphalos of the Adriatic Sea. The recent discovery of some 13.000 sherds of Greek fine pottery (late 6th - 2nd/1st century BC), some with graffiti that confirm the existence of Diomedes cult, enables discussion on ancient navigation up and down and across the Adriatic. Analysing other archaeological data, ancient written sources, the winds and currents, meteorological data collected in the last 100 years from north, central and south Adriatic, and the capabilities of boats and sailors, we offer a preliminary picture of how the ancient Greeks navigated in this part of the Mediterranean. Documents from the Medieval period and local traditional weather lore of fishermen support our assumption that long-distance trade with cargo ships was possible only from May to October.
