Abstract

Mediterranean civilization would hardly be the same without the monumental contributions of the Phœnicians. Among their legacy are thousands of inscriptions-carved in stone, scratched in ceramics, inscribed on metal and ivory, and penned with ink. These records detail the culture and history of their renowned Levantine cities-Byblos, Sidon, Tyre, and others-from which Phœnician influence on Mediterranean art, religion, and commerce spread.
