Phoenicians, the master traders and sailors of their time. Thanks! @justinsummey

OT history - "Phoenicians, the master traders and sailors of their time"

All were fiercely independent, rival cities and, unlike the neighboring inland states, the Phoenicians represented a confederation of maritime traders rather than a defined country
