Commerce doesn't need a city.

The first marketplace was the beach. The Phoenicians pass by in boats (same thing for caravans), they leave an object on the beach, and later they come back to see if anyone has taken it, if anyone has put something else in its place. That's what commerce is: "The caravan passes." This still exists: someone puts a jug of milk on the side of the road and takes off; later he comes back to pick up the money. If there is no money, the jug of milk isn't brought back.

The city is the result of war, at least of preparation for war.

Paul Virilio, Pure War, 1983
