Having finished with the palace officials you now lead your donkeys through the narrow streets of Mari. There are crowds of people and you have to hurry to keep up with Nabium-malik and his daughter who clearly know where they are going. At a number of doorways Nabium-malik stops and knocks. Traders come out and inspect the goods. Sometimes they offer some silver for the goods. Eventually all the goods have been sold and you can start looking for good wine and timber to buy and take home to Sippar. Your father will be pleased that you have learnt so much about being a merchant.
