Abstract

From the beginning of its history, the Ḥaḍrami port of Sumhuram was involved in a very wide network of commercial contacts with different parts of the ancient world. Different types of pottery and objects enlightened the Sumhuram’s strong relationships with the Roman world, Egypt, the Horn of Africa, Eastern Arabia, the Persian Gulf and India. The port was also linked to South Arabia, in particular to its motherland, the kingdom of Ḥaḍramawt. Moreover, the discovery at Sumhuram of four fragments of jars with seal impressions naming Ḏrʾkr increases our knowledge about a further relationship between the kingdom of Ḥaḍramawt and the kingdom of Qatabān.
