Where the trade happended
Most places in Greece were less then 100 miles away from the sea and many cities were built directly on the coast so they had easy access to trade by sea. The trade took place on many different Sea like the Ionian, Aegean, Mediterranean, and the Black sea. Most of the coasts were very long. Almost every trading station was on the water.
What the Ancient Greeks Land Made them Trade for
The Greeks had too little fertile soil to grow grain so they had to import large quantities from abroad. They also imported wood slaves, wool, precious metals, wine, olive oil, salt, fish sauce, exotic animals, and lots more. Greece was mostly covered with mountains.
