\"Catara\", the oldest and most prominent name for the Qatar Peninsula on historical and geographic maps, has been in use since the year 150 AD. The map that Claudius Ptolemaeus, a geographer, drew in 150 AD was published in 882 AD -1477 AD. Later, it was published in the Historical Atlas of Islam. It identified the Arabian Peninsula peoples in the middle of second century AD. It also gave the geographic location of Qatar Peninsula as Catara, North West Gerra, or near it. Also, Cadara was to its west.
