Griffon-headed cauldrons, craters, jugs and strainers, and fine painted Attic cups, all of which would have been used at a Greek symposium, were shipped to Mediterranean ports such as Massilia (Marseilles). From there they were transported along the navigable rivers into the hinterland to be used in the complex systems of gift exchange which bound these peoples to the Greek and Etruscan traders of the south. Along with these trappings of civilization came wine. How much of it, if any, was at this stage Greek or Italian is difficult to tell. What is certain is that the large ceramic amphorae in which the wine was transported inland were manufactured along the coast of southern France in the vicinity of Marseilles, suggesting, but not proving, that most of the wine consumed was locally manufactured.
