This chapter examines the evidence for annual fluctuations in Rhodian wine production during the second century BC to draw attention to the impact of climate variability on ancient economies. It also assesses to what extent the data gathered calls for a re-evaluation of current understanding of the Rhodian wine trade, in particular the impact of the establishment of Delos as a free port in 166 BC.

Keywords:   climate change, ancient economies, Rhodian, wine production, wine trade, Delos, free port
