Tarshish was not Carthage.
Romans destroyed and pillaged Carthage, as they did Greece and stole
it's literature and invented Christianity, Judaism and Islam in the process.

תרשיש ( TRSIS)

1 Kings 10:22 (Septuagint)
For the king had at sea a navy of Carthage with the navy of Hiram: once in three years came the navy of Carthage, bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks

Homer Lliad. 4.104 - ἐλέφαντα γυνὴ φοίνικι μιήνῃ Μῃονὶς ἠὲ Κάειρα
Woman of Meonia or Caria strains purple dye on to a piece of Ivory

Homer Lliad. 10.412
Towards the sea lie the Carians and the Paeonians, with curved bows, and the Leleges and Caucones, and the goodly Pelasgi
Ivory Trade
In Latin, Ivory is called Ebor, Eboris or Eboreus

SN BIM [שנה בים] is the Phoenician word for 'Ivory'
SN 'Teeth or Ivory'

Strabo mentions a place called "Ape Islands" ( Pithecussæ Islands) - Strab. 13.4 & Strab. 5.4.9

- Pithecussæ (islands) who say that the Pitheci (or monkeys) are called by the Tyrrhenians Arimi.
- Pithecussæ which lie in front of the Cymæan territory

Cymæan [ Κυμαίας] ' Kumaias;
Arimi - [ἀρίμους ] ' Arimous

Πιθηκούσσαις ( Pith-h-Koussais)
πιθήκους ( Pith h Kous)
πιθήκων (ותוכיים) - Ape or Peacock

As it says in 1 Kings 10:22, Monkeys were among the cargo of Carthage.
so where they get the Monkeys from.

In Ezekiel 10:9 , Tarshish [תַּרְשִׁישׁ] translates ἄνθρακος (white-beryl)

.. What are you even talking about? This is completely irrelevant to this thread.
