Zingara and Trade

Historically, Zingara has tried hard to outdo Argos in the seas. The Zingarans managed to trade along the Pictish Isles, despite the intense ferocity of the Sea-Tribes that exceeds even the savagery of those land bound Picts. They traded tin, ostrich plumes from Kush via Stygia, wine, weapons and other goods for copper ore, hides, gold dust, whale teeth, walrus tusks and other goods made by the Picts. The Picts tend to fiercely resist contact with the other nations, but reluctantly traded with the Zingarans, probably because they are not entirely foreign and have a distant kinship with the Picts. This trade is something the traders of Argos never try. The coast is too savage, largely uncharted (at least by Argossean chart makers) and frightening. Today, there is little trading going on by Zingaran merchants along the Pictish Isles. Zingara also competes with Argos by exporting olives and olive-products.
