Part IV. Analyzing Data
The Economy of the Hellenistic Era

This map shows the major trade routes and trade goods during the Hellenistic period. Note that there were two main economic spheres: that of the Ptolemies in Egypt, and that of Seleucids. Luxury goods were imported from India, Africa, and Arabia primarily by caravan, while basic goods like grain, raw materials, and manufactured goods were shipped by sea. Slaves were a key part of Hellenistic trade. The old Greek states, the new Hellenistic kingdoms, and Rome all sought to buy slaves.
Using the map key, develop your own mathematical formula for each good that was traded. Then create a chart listing the traded goods and the amount traded over the Hellenistic Era.
