Storyboard Text

  • *gasp* Who are you strange, talking bird? Why are you on my ship?
  • Hello, mortal.
  • I am Horus, god of the sky. I have come to learn about your civilization.
  • Forgive me. I am King Hiram of Tyre, ruler of Phoenicia. How may I be of service?
  • Tell me more about your civilization. Where is your kingdom located?
  • Phoenicia is located on the Eastern Mediterranean coast. 160 miles long & 20 miles wide.
  • Yes, but we are excellent mariners & have turned to the sea for trade. We have many colonies in Northern Africa, like Carthage & Leptis
  • That seems like a rather small kingdom.
  • Phoenicia is composed of several independent city states. I rule the City of Tyre, the most powerful state along with Sidon.
  • Each city is lead by heredity monarchs, which includes myself. But, sometimes I meet with a council of elders for advice.
  • Very interesting. How do you operate your political system?
  • Fascinating! Now a topic of my personal interest: Religion. What gods do you worship?
  • Our religion is polytheistic. Our main gods are Baal (god of the sun & storms), Astarte (goddess of war & fertility), Yamm (god of the sea), & Mot (god of death)
  • We have built many temples: each dedicated to a specific god. We also hold ceremonies in which we pray, burn incense, & make offerings to the gods with animal sacrifices, food, & precious goods
  • And how do you worship these gods?
