The Phoenicians (1500–300 B.C.) | Thematic Essay | Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History | The Metropolitan Museum of Art


Q Files Encyclopedia | The Phoenicians were Mediterranean traders active between 1,500 and 300 BCE. They founded the cities of Sidon and Tyre on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea, in modern day Lebanon. They were descended from the Canaanites and became known as Phoenicians - from the Greek word phoinos which means red, after the reddish purple dye they traded. The Phoenicians founded city-states, each of which was independent but might enter into alliances with others.
