Traders

Traders

This Egyptian scribe is recording the goods brought by a procession of merchants from afar. From left to right, his visitors are a South Sudanese dude bringing ostrich eggs, a Greek guy with a vase that’s probably full of olive oil, and a West African chick bearing ingots of gold. Unfortunately for the West African lady, the Greek dude isn’t the most pleasant male to stand behind in line.
Of course, I got the idea for this from various ancient Egyptian wall paintings portraying processions of foreigners (typically from the Middle East or Sudan) bringing tribute to the Pharaoh or his officials.
