The Peloponnese, the olive trees and its olive oil

The Peloponnese, the olive trees and its olive oil

The cities of Mycenae and Argos, place of origin of the most important royal family of Ancient Greece, the Atreid dynasty, were famous during ancient times not only for the wealth of these areas in gold but also for their civilization. A civilization which in antiquity meant engagement not only with the arts and literature but also with the land. A land that they learned how to exploit, to plough, to grow, to live with and live through it.

The clay tablets of Linear B syllabic script that were discovered in Mycenae and Pylos, provide evidence of an economy based on the trade of olive derived goods such as olive oil and olives. What is extremely interesting is that these ancient civilizations utilized three different symbols to depict the words olive, olive tree and olive oil underlining the importance of these words in their language.

These are the same symbols that have inspired the name, logo and packaging of the product 3000 B.C. Olive Oil. Today, the Peloponnesians continue their passionate affair with olive oil which started 5000 years ago.
