Cilicia was not the only source of passum, but the raisin wines produced in Cilicia, on Crete and in North Africa were considered the best varieties. Recent research has shown that that Cilician passum was shipped in Pinched-handle (Zemer Type 41) amphoras. Cretan passum was shipped in a differently shaped vessel (see Antigone Marangou-Lerat, Le vin et les amphores de Crète, Ètudes Crétoises 30 [Athens: Ècole Française d’Athènes, 1995], Type AC1). The kind of vessel used to ship African passum has not yet been identified.
