The Commerce and Navigation of the Erythraean Sea

Excerpt from The Commerce and Navigation of the Erythraean Sea In the Preface to my former work, "Ancient India as described by Megasthenes and Arrian," I informed the reader that it was my intention to publish from time to time translations of the Greek and Latin works which relate to ancient India, until the series should be exhausted, and the present volume is the second instalment towards the fulfilment of that undertaking. It contains a translation of the Periplus (i. e. Circumnavigation) of the Erythr an Sea, together with a translation of the second part of the Indiha of Arrian describing the celebrated voyage made by Nearkhos from the mouth of the Indus to the head of the Persian Gulf. Arrian's narrative, copied from the Journal of the voyage written by Nearkhos himself, forms an admirable supplement to the Periplus, as it contains a minute description of a part of the Erythr an Coast which is merely glanced at by the author of that work. The translations have been prepared from the most approved texts. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
