    The original image was obtained from from the following copyright free source:
    The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt and Nubia by David Roberts
    David Roberts Scottish painter born Stockbridge, Edinburgh 24 October 1796 died London 25 November 1864.
    In 1838 and 1839, David Roberts spent eleven months travelling and sketching throughout Egypt from Alexandria to Abu Simbel and through Sinai to Petra, Jerusalem, Palestine, and Lebanon. The 247 lithographs that Belgian engraver Louis Haghe then produced at the rate of one a month from the drawings executed during Roberts’ trip were published in six volumes as “The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt and Nubia” (1842-1846) and “Egypt and Nubia” (1846-1849).
    Text derived from wikipedia
    The commerce of the ancient world was gathered into the warehouses of Tyre. “Tyrian merchants were the first who ventured to navigate the Mediterranean waters; and they founded their colonies on the coasts and neighbouring islands of the Aegean Sea, in Greece, on the northern coast of Africa, at Carthage and other places, in Sicily and Corsica, in Spain at Tartessus, and even beyond the pillars of Hercules at Gadeira (Cádiz)”.

    CONGRATULATIONS … well done

  • Oh dear !
    I so appreciate my pictures being featured in groups but I seem to have missed replying to this 1 month old feature in Ancient Relics Customs & Sites.
    It does happen that some of my comments/replies get lost in the ether but if I did miss the reply ‘Thank you very much’ and I will try harder next time :)
