ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the voyages that led the vessels of the ancients close to America. A thousand years before the new era started, there were Phoenician sailors who drove Solomon's fleets to far-flung Ophir, as well as navies at the harbors of Great Britain. The event that touched America is the story of Herodotus Necho, the King of Egypt who gave orders to Phoenician seamen to circumnavigate the Africa which took them more than two years. A more convincing voyage is that of Hanno, an infiltrating expedition in the fifth century before Christ (B.C.).
