In the past, the Mediterranean served as a crossroad of communities, cultures, languages and religions, becoming the pulsating heart for Europe, Africa and Asia. First of all, its history is a story of people moving from distant areas of this wide-spreading basin trace intercultural relations, making the Mediterranean Sea one of the most dynamic areas of the world. Production, consumption and exchange of goods between individuals or organised groups constitute valuable markers to understand how often the innovative impact was an outcome of exchange networks and co-operation. Starting from these issues, the present book analyses and reconstructs, by means of amphorae, the trade routes in the Eastern provinces of Moesia Inferior and Thracia and the economic relationships between this area and the regions of Eastern and Western Mediterranean. The analysis of 90 deposits of amphorae coming from selected case studies pointed out some general trends in order to integrate and facilitate the creation of global changes in consumption and commerce of goods. The direct examination of published and unpublished finds of amphorae discovered in these sites was used to draft a chronological scheme, which builds on relevant contextual data and published evidences. A special detail examination is dedicated to the Pontic amphorae, generally less known, classified in different ways in the local studies. The results obtained provides the opportunity to elaborate a final synthesis that takes into consideration economic long term developments. In particular, two commercials routes are highlighted: the first one is connected with the Western Black Sea trade route and the second one runs along the Danube.
