The Phoenicians were famed in Classical Greece and Rome as 'traders in purple', referring to their monopoly on the precious purple dye of the Murex snail, used, among other things, for royal clothing, and for their spread of their alphabets, from which almost all modern phonetic alphabets are derived. The Phoenicians used the galley, a man-powered sailing vessel, and are credited with the invention of the bireme.
