Roberto Salinas Price places Troy along Croatia's Dalmatian Coast where, he claims, geographical realities respond to geographical statements found in the Iliad and Odyssey. Furthermore, he argues, internal linguistic evidence suggests that these works were originally created in a Slavic Dialect but later became translated by a bicultural society into "Homeric" Greek.However, he adds, somewhere along this process of translation the tutorial guidance required for an understanding of these texts became lost, to the detriment of subsequent generations which never understood that the Iliad and Odyssey were sister compositions never intended to be separated from each other.

ROBERTO SALINAS PRICE - was born in 1936 in Mexico City where he currently resides with his wife and two children. Salinas Price was born to a well known family of merchant bankers, and was educated at Saint Johns College in Annapolis, Maryland. Since 1964 he has been a scholar of the Iliad and the Odyssey and he proposes in his thesis that Troy, in the Homeric epic, is an archeological site which is located in what is known today as the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia (ex-Yugoslavia). He and his wife visit this site frequently for study and research. In Croatia his work is well known, highly respected and admired. Salinas Price has written Homer's Blind Audience (1984) published also in Belgrade under the title of Homerova Slepa Publika (1985); Atlas of Homeric Geography (1992), also in Spanish with the title Atlas de Geografía Homerica (2001), and most recently Homeric Whispers (2006), which soon will be available in Spanish and Serbian.
