Diplomacy in potential hostile regions

Quote:The point is, surely, that these slaves are not to be identified with the clich├ęd image of the galley slave, chained to his oar and labouring under the lash, but slaves simply because they were owned by the merchant. As Casson remarks in the book cited by Nathan, even the shipmaster could be a slave.

Thank you and yes, this was my point. Apologies for not being clearer.
