Abstract

This article examines the archaeological and numismatic evidence for Roman trade in the Indian Ocean from the Augustan annexation of Egypt up to the early third century AD. This is in order to demonstrate that the most intense period of contact and exchange was around the late-first century AD. The arguments presented here challenge two major positions which assert either a peak during the Julio-Claudian period or alternatively a continuing intensity of contact up until at least the late-second century AD.
