The closest source for the alabaster of which some figurines were made would be the south coast of Sicily. Other imports, such as the fragment of Serra d’Alto ware from Skorba, may have passed through Sicily. On Sicily, the two hypogea of Calaforno in the southeastern part of the island are reminiscent of the hypogeum of Hal Saflieni. The reconstruction of economic relations between the two islands in the Neolithic and the first stages of the Bronze Age has recently been elevated from the study of the durable materials preserved in archaeological deposits to the level of the consideration of the perishable materials which are not completely lost to us if we have the imagination to recapture their role in prehistory.

Aside from distant Transylvania, the sources of the material are all on islands, Sardinia (Monte Arci) and Palmarola in the northern Tyrrhenian, Pantelleria between Sicily and modern Tunisia, and Lipari, in the center of the Aeolian Islands that are disposed like a three-pointed star off the north coast of Sicily. Stromboli, the easternmost of the group, is still an active volcano. Vulcano, south of Lipari, has thermal activity. The coneshaped profile and geology of the other islands show them to be extinct volcanoes.

The objects in this material were largely small ax heads, some of which were never hafted or used but were prized as objects of prestige. The trade in such precious, non-utilitarian materials poses a question for archaeological interpretation. Were they traded simply as goods like any others or was their exchange removed from what we normally think of as trade? If the latter alternative is true, we must envisage an entire class of precious objects and materials exchanged as gifts by individuals privileged to possess them.
