Phoenicia

Ancient PhoeniciaAncient Phoenicia is the term used to describe an ancient civilization in the north of ancient Canaan, with its heartland along the coastal plains of what are now Lebanon and Syria.

Although the people of the region called themselves the "Canaani" or "Kenaani," the name Phoenicia became common thanks to the Greeks who called them the "Phoiniki."

Phoenician civilization was an enterprising maritime trading culture that spread right across the Mediterranean during the first millennium BCE.

Though ancient boundaries of such city-centered cultures fluctuated, the city of Tyre seems to have been the southernmost.
