Our aim is to compare three different perceptions of the agricultural landscape of Hellenistic-Roman Sicily: the "cadrastal" landscape as shown in the Tables of Halaisa, the literary landscape, as evidenced by sources as the poetry of Theocritus, and the landscape reconstructed through archaeological surveys (landscape archaeology). These perceptions are mediated by the elements considered: in the Tables the detection of the boundaries of public-ownwd lots, in the poetry of Theocritus the creation of an ideal landscape, while the archaeology of landscape allows us to reconstruct a system of population, result of complex interactions. This parallel analysis allows us to use the archaeological data to reconstruct the raltionship between human activities and resources, and to understand the perceptive and symbolic aspects which link communities to the territory in which they live (social archaeology of landscape), also using some potentialitis of GIS, especially the analyses of intervisibility.
