One clear sign of this sharing of goods and ideas were weights and measures. From at least the mid-3rd millennium onwards in the eastern Mediterranean and Aegean, we see evidence for both regional systems of measurement and a familiarity with the points of convergence between them (Alberti and Parise 2005; Michailidou 1999; Pulak 2000; Rahmstorf 2006). These developments probably begin slightly earlier in Mesopotamia, during the 4th millennium, but in all cases, the evidence for standard weight systems co-appears with the evidence for more elaborate sealing practices and more standardised containers, suggesting, in each case, not only the up-scaling of administrative practice but also important changes in the relationship between society and material culture (Wengrow 2008).

The link between copper and commerce is quite strong: It was the major material used for tools and was commonly traded, recycled, and alloyed. Merchants on the Nile are referred to as being "as busy as copper" (Blackman and Peet 1925: 288), and copper was also a commonly used unit of equivalence (particu­ larly in Egypt; see Janssen 1975: 441-42).
