Inspiration : In ancient Greece, trade routes played a significant role in the exchange of goods and culture. The Greeks were active traders, both within the Mediterranean and with regions further east, including India and the Middle East. Spices, such as pepper, cinnamon, and ginger, were highly prized commodities in these trade networks. They were used for flavoring food, preserving it, and for medicinal purposes. The most famous trade route for spices was the Silk Road, which connected the Mediterranean world to the East, facilitating the exchange of valuable spices, herbs and other goods.
