The Name Rhodes
Rhodes is named after the island in Greece located in the eastern Aegean Sea. The island of Rhodes provides us with one of the earliest documented forms of insurance, known as the general average. Circa 750 B.C., merchants of Rhodes, whose goods were shipped together, agreed to pay a proportionally divided premium that would be used to reimburse any merchant whose goods were deliberately jettisoned in order to lighten the ship and save it from a total loss. The principal of general average endures to this day in maritime law.
