How did the purple dye, Tyrian, impact the Mediterranean region? It was so rare it became a symbol of great status and wealth. It caused the city of Tyre to become a major political center. It made the Egyptians invade Phoenicia so they could control the trade of Tyrian. It led to a sharp increase in immigration to the Eastern Mediterranean region.

    1. is correct. Tyrian purple, also called 'royal purple' because only the wealthiest people could afford it. Before 1859 the cost of paints and dyes was based on the materials made to create the colors - plants, animals, minerals etc. Royal purple comes from the ink of a sea creature, so it very rare and so very expensive.
