Of the shorter inscriptions of the Phoenicians, by far the greater number were attached either Inscriptions in the Phoenician character book votive offerings or to tombs.

Phoenician sailors, architects, and artisans were all prominent in Persian service. They also served elsewhere, and Phoenician ships were in the Greek navy that defeated Xerxes I at Salamis.
