Example text

The Greeks initially occupied the northern part of what would become the town. This, as has been observed and as the archaeological finds indicate, grew towards the south with time (Sanmartí 1992b, 173–94; Dupré 2005, 103–23). I will deal later with the appearance and development of Emporion. Rhode is described by Strabo [3. 4. 8] as being situated in the modern town of Rosas, some kilometres to the north of Emporion. According to him, it was “a small town belonging to the Emporitans” (polichnion Emporiton) and, although there are some who suggest that it may already have existed in the 6th century BC, the truth is that the oldest archaeological remains do not predate the 5th century (Martín, Nieto and Nolla 1979, 4; Domínguez 1990, 13–25).

As mentioned earlier, Greek imports to the Tartessian centre in Huelva decreased considerably from around the year 540 BC. Without doubt, the capture of Phocaea by the Persians, as well as a restructuring of trade affecting the central Mediterranean (Domínguez 1991c, 239–73), influenced the transformation of Phocaean commerce in Iberia. These processes affected and interrupted trade between the Greeks and Tartessians, and occasioned a reorganisation of commercial strategies. Those centres which had emerged in the south-east of the Peninsula now started to play a significant rôle.

This is especially evident in the case of the Palici, whose use by Aeschylus in the Aetnaeans (ca. 472 BC) may be interpreted either as a fusion of the Greek and the native (Corbato 1996, 67) or, perhaps more correctly, as an expropriation by the Greeks of native traditions in order to justify Greek political domination in general and, more concretely, the dispossession of native We have previously discussed, with respect to Morgantina, different interpretations of that eventual Greek presence.
