The Phoenicians were an economic and cultural force in the Mediterranean from 1200 B.C. They became skilled glassworkers who fashioned technically masterful beads and developed unique forms of pendants made by core forming. The powerful port city of Carthage was the center of production for many of these glass head/face beads and pendants with protruding eyes that are thought to have been used as protection against the “evil eye” (CMOG)
