We present accurate measurements of the central wavelengths of 4947 atomic absorption lines in the solar optical spectrum. The wavelengths, precise to a level m s-1, are given for both flux and disc-centre spectra, as measured in relatively recent FTS solar atlases. This catalogue modernizes existing sources based on photographic measurements and provides a benchmark to test and perform wavelength calibrations of astronomical spectra. It will also permit observers to improve the absolute wavelength calibration of solar optical spectra when lamps are not available at the telescope.
