Mantai - An Ancient Trade City

According to ScienceMag.org, "Grape seeds found in ancient Sri Lanka may have been imported by Roman merchants... But 1500 years ago, Mantai was a bustling port where merchants traded their era’s most valuable commodities.

Now, a study of ancient plant remains reveals traders from all corners of the world—including the Roman Empire—may have visited or even lived there."

That's right Manta intersects Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, because of it's location on the Indian Ocean.
