Compare the distances between the Greek colonies in the Mediterranean and the length of the Phoenician route around Africa.

The distance between the most distant Greek colonies in the Black Sea and Gaul (from Tauric Chersonesos to Massalia) is about 10 times shorter than the sea route around Africa – from the eastern arm of the Nile through the ancient Suez Canal and the Red Sea, then around the Somali peninsula, then south along the eastern coast Africa — to the Cape of Good Hope, and to the north — along the western coast of Africa, to Gibraltar and Carthage.
