It did talk about trade between the two, but I don't remember the specifics. Carthage did indeed import luxury items from Egypt, although they got their wheat/barley from the Bagradas Valley and Sardinia. The Carthaginians were big cultivators of stone fruits and wine, but I'm not sure how much of that was ending up in Egypt.Did that book talk about trade between Carthage & Egypt. Ptolemaic Egypt established a big trade in papyrus, wheat/barley, and luxury goods (fabrics, perfumes, ceramics, objects from the African interior like ebony & elephant tusks). It sounds like luxury goods were found in Carthage. Any idea what Carthage traded?
