Originally published in 1928, this detailed book examines the beginnings, progress and substance of the trade between India and the Roman Empire from Augustus to Marcus Aurelius. Warmington presents this history from a western point of view, and uses a wide range of ancient literary sources to explore what goods were traded between the two regions and the mechanisms of that trade. This thoroughly researched book will be of value to anyone with an interest in ancient trade and connections between the Roman Empire and its neighbours.
