However, such a policy does not seem to have been pursued widely elsewhere on the island and other cities may have used different tactics. In addition to the trade existing between native centres and Greek cities, undeniable from an archaeological point of view, we may think of the presence of Greeks in the native centres. The existence of Greek graffiti in different places of Sicily (Dubois 1989, passim) as well as the development, from the mid6th century, of indigenous writing clearly based on Greek alphabets (Agostiniani 1991, 23–41; 1992, 125–57; 1997, 579–81) may indicate the penetration of native territories by individual Greeks.

A passage from Strabo [3. 4. 6] indicates the existence between New Carthage and the River Jucar, and near the latter, of three trading posts or small Massaliot towns (polichinia Massalioton), of which the best known (and the only one mentioned by Strabo) is Hemeroskopeion, which has a sanctuary for Ephesian Artemis on a promontory.
