As we all know that Anatolian peninsula is covered by three seas (Aegean, Black Sea and Mediterranean). So marine trade routes have great importance as others as, such as Silk Road. Some civilizations developed their trade fleet and dominated coasts of Anatolia. Some places were bases of navies.
We can find out that there was a trade chain starting from Aegean coasts to Greece. Once upon a time, there used to be port sites such as Ephesus. Actually Ephesus is located inland due to alluvion filling. Even today Aegean coasts are being filled by alluvions. We know that trade routes transported many items to Roman Empire and Greek civilizations.
