DISTRIBUTION OF THE PHOENICIANS 1
When we sum up in my review all the places where something Phoenician and/or Punic has been found, then we see some peculiar results. My survey is however never complete, but still very extensive. Nowadays
seems to be the land with
most of those places. Land of origin: Spain we find only on the fifth
rank. The Phoenicians were spread over the whole world, as they know it in
those days. Just like the Lebanese people has done it today. Lebanon
21 (without Sardinia)
And small islands in the high sea 10
Which gives a total of c.1176 places.
In this total we find real settlements, mixed settlements, fortresses, burial places, harbours and other places. When we look at only the settlements, then the picture of ranking the countries is completely different. That is something for another message.
