Abstract: A curve is finitely cyclic if and only if it is the inverse limit of graphs of genus $ \leq k$ , where $ k$ is some integer. In this paper it is shown that if $ X$ is a homogeneous finitely cyclic curve that is not tree-like, then $ X$ is a solenoid or $ X$ admits a decomposition into mutually homeomorphic, homogeneous, tree-like continua with quotient space a solenoid. Since the Menger curve is homogeneous, the restriction to finitely cyclic curves is essential.
