Who was a famous 6th century Phoenician explorer?
Inventing an alphabet to replace syllabic writing. This alphabet is the basis for the Greek and Roman alphabets, and ultimately the alphabet we commonly use today.
Himilco was the Phoenician who traveled to England. He went around Spain from Carthage and landed in the British Isles.
I would say that the most famous Phoenician would have to be Hiram I of Tyre (980-936 bc). Mentioned in the Bible as a friend and trading partner of King Solomon of Israel. Un…der his rule Tyre grew to be the most important of Phoenician cities.
They did a lot! One invention is the alphabet. Many people think that the Greeks did that, but really the Phoenicians did, and later, the Greeks adopted the Phoenicians alphab…et and changed it. That's the alphabet we use today!
The earliest European explorers of Georgia were Spaniards. Cabeza de Vaca, who broke off from the obsessive conquistador Narvaez, explored along the line of what is today the …FL/GA border. Hernando de Soto was the first explorer who ventured around the interior of the future state of GA. The final stage was carried out by English fur traders in the late 17-early 18 Centuries, who covered the inland portions of the state not visited by de Soto. Great answer for a repot!

The Phoenicians were a Semitic people who established an early civilization - from about 1200 BCE - on the Mediterranean coast near what is now Lebanon and western Syria w…here they established a series of independent city-states (eg Sidon, Tyre, Byblos, with a major city-state in Tunisia - Carthage). They were also one of the strongest of the maritime powers of their time. They established trading colonies and posts all around the Mediteranean basin, in North Africa (Morroco, Tunisia, Lybia, Algeria, Egypt), the Italian peninsula, Sicily, Corsica, Spain, Portugal, Babylon. Phoenicia as a state and civilization lasted from 1550 BC to 300 BC when the main territory was conquered by the Persians. The cities in the east were taken over by Persia, then the Hellenistic kingdoms in the 3rd Century BCE. The city of Carthage fought a century-long war with the rising power Rome and was demolished. By the 1st Century BCE Rome had absorbed the eastern cities as well into is empire. As an ethnicity, the Phoenician were of Semite origin but were a mix of tribes which had moved in from the east into Lebanon and Syria. They produced the alphabet from which Greece and Rome developed theirs. They are credited with inventing the bireme. The Phoenicians were conquered by Cyrus the Great of Persia in 539 BC, and then were divided into four vassal kingdoms thereafter. They traded around the mediterranean sea purple and showed people how to use the alphabet. They lived in colonies and were spread out by Cyrus the great.

They created the idea of Phonics, or using sounds with their "alphabet" in order to dictate their spelling and also translation from the paper to the mouth.
