Three early trading cultures along the Mediterranean Sea were
Weegy: Our knowledge of trade objects is best known from ceramics discovered at ports and in shipwrecks, but it is rare that pots themselves were traded objects. 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. Maritime Levantine cities with no rural hinterland, such as Tyre, Sidon, and Ashkelon, were also likely to have been regularly supplied with agricultural products by sea as early as the Bronze Age. Wine and olive oil, major regional products of the Mediterranean, were regularly shipped from one area to another.
