ABSTRACT
The article examines the role of overseas trade Cretan society during the 6th and 5th centuries BCE. According to the author, archaeological evidence from the city of Eleurtherna, Crete, Greece, and other sites in western Crete contradict previous historical interpretations of this period as one of isolation. It is suggested that West Cretan commercial relations underwent significant changes during the 6th century, including a focus on the Peloponnesian region.
