Three early trading cultures along the Mediterranean Sea were

More often, it was the contents of the pots that mattered. [ These can be generally divided into three categories: bulk agricultural goods, prestige or status items, and precious metals and currency. Grain imports to Italy from North Africa were crucial to feed an overurbanized Roman population.
