Warmington presents this history from a western point of view, and uses a wide range of ancient literary sources to explore what goods were traded between the two regions and the mechanisms of that trade. This thoroughly researched book will be of value to anyone with an interest in ancient trade and connections between the Roman Empire and its neighbours.
