Two remarkable books ----  

The experiences of the Phoenicians in the ancient Mediterranean are explored in rich detail and highly readable form in the book Phoenician Secrets

Drawing back the veil of secrecy surrounding the Phoenicians uncovers new glimpses of the early Lebanese people as well as Romans, Greeks, Minoans, Sea Peoples, Egyptians and other societies.

This is a walk through the idyllic ancient Mediterranean you will always remember.


The Phoenicians were present in Athens and the rest of Greece during the Golden Age. The Greek word for them was "metics" which meant "foreign residents." 

Since the Persians demanded the Phoenicians be loyal to them, and the Persians were fighting the Greeks, there was a complicated relationship between the Phoenicians and Greeks. 

The people and epic events of Classical Athens are brought to life more beautifully than ever before in this enjoyable book. It has 66 illustrations and is highly recommended. Ancient Athens: Five Intriguing Lives.


The Phoenicians were the great sea-traders of the ancient Mediterranean, famous for cedar ships, the alphabet, purple cloth, Carthage, Hannibal and cities in Lebanon. Yet they also created a strong and unique society that interacted with the great societies of antiquity such as Greece, Rome, Egypt, Persia and others.
