Somewhere on the Persian Gulf coast in ancient Arabia there once existed the ancient city of Gerrha. The bustling trading post attracted merchants from all over the world. It was one of the most important points on the Incense trade route, which was a network of ancient sea and land trading routes that stretched from Mediterranean ports across Egypt and Levant through the Northeastern parts of Africa and Arabia to India. In Gerrha, merchants traded exotic goods coming from India like sandalwood, silk, and spices with regionally produced frankincense and myrrh and goods from Northeaster Africa like Gold and Somali incense. By the second century AD, trade in the region has completely died out due to expansion of alternate trade routes and trade methods, and with it the ancient city of Gerrha was once again reclaimed by the desert sands, never to be found again.
Notes include cardamom, nutmeg, incense, amber, and sandalwood.
