The Phoenician script can be dated at around 1050 BCE, and from it the Arabic, Hebrew and by extension Greek, Roman, and Cyrillic scripts evolved.
The Phoenician civilization was centered along the Mediterranean coast in an area known as Cana’an. The map below shows a number of Phoenician cities and nearby cities that were important trading partners. The spellings reflect their pronunciation in Phoenician. However, two of the cities on the map are shown with their modern names which are very different from what they were called in Phoenician times.
On some black and white printers, the colors of the sea and the Phoenician territory are hard to tell apart. The Phoenician territory is the area that includes the following cities: Aynuk, Tripoli, Beritos, and Tsarephath.
G1. Match up the Phoenician names in the list below with the names on the map. Remember, two of the names will not match, so you should have two names left over.
Drag and drop the corresponding name, or use "Unused city" if it is one of the two left-over cities.
